    Are those Doppelmayr grips?

      Looks like it.

    Looks like Yan, but with Doppelmayr grips and Doppelmayr safety bars.

    this lift was made in 2001 I saw this was still a double lift in the 2001 trail map

      It appears that the chairs were only components that were replaced in 2001. Do you happen to know where the triple chairs came from?

    Ch 8 seems to run slower than most, but is a sneaky great lift on a powder day or when there’s weather above tree line (i.e. often). Will be sad to see it go if the most recent edition of the Mammoth Master Plan is fully implemented.
