    Does anyone think this lift will eventually get a detachable upgrade?

      Having never skied Alyeska, I can’t see how that would make sense. The lift is just so short, plus the expense of a midstation. While detaches are always nice, there are just so many more places for the money to go.

      I don’t think the length justifies it being a detachable. I believe it is fine for a fixed quad.
