    That’s a big break over for Pennsylvania!

      It’s Standard for a Riblet. Riblets are known for having insane amounts of towers on their lifts, especially the break overs as seen here.

    According to, this lift rarely runs. It is parallel to Marc Antony, which they use more because it provides access to the Julius Caesar trail. Even that lift only runs on weekends. The only weekday lifts at Camelback are the two high speed quads, Sun Bowl 1, Glen, and Meadows.

      Your right. It is seldom used, this year it only ran a few peak weekends I believe. I know it ran MLK weekend (there’s a video showing it) and I saw some other weekends where it was listed as open.

    Eyy I wrote that doc! I used to ski there, and for the 4(?) years I skied there it probably ran 4 times. Surprised it hasn’t been removed yet

    I was at the waterpark today and saw this lift spinning for summer maintenance. I’m glad they’re still keeping it maintained even though it is rarely used.
