    I wonder why this one and Frenchman’s kept their teardrop chairs instead of getting EJ chairs when Doppelmayr refurbished them.

    The Doppelmayr hangers are longer, changing chairs would have required excavation work.

    According to Ecosign’s Sun Valley master development plan, this lift will be replaced with an extension of the Roundhouse Gondola, going to the summit. Hopefully when they extend the Roundhouse Gondola, additional capacity will be added, as the current gondola only moves 1,800 people per hour despite the useful location of it.

    Then there will be another gondola connecting the River Run base to the base of Dollar Mountain, which is something I very much look forward to.

    How does this lift fair to wind? Much of the liftline looks very exposed.
