    Chairs 46-50 were added much later in the lift’s life, given their number stickers are different from the ones of the lower 45 chairs (a mismatch I’m familiar with given my experiences with riding the Teacup Express and Skyline Express, which have the same thing).

    Glad to see my home mountain getting some love!

    The terrain park and halfpipe used to be situated to the left of towers 6-7, and was served by the older Badlands Double. After the Orchard Express was installed the park moved there and the double was removed.

    The plaque at the bottom says “Installed 2022” when the majority of equipment (terminal and terminal equipment, grips) are very much 1999. Marketing I suppose?

    Most of the lift components were updated during the summer of 2022. The images at the bottom show the new stuff.
