    This is probably one of the shortest lifts in the U.S. and it is probably the slowest too. The next thing Bogus should do is replace it with a triple or quad.

      Definitely not the shortest. Timberline in Oregon, Mt. Snow in Vermont, Montage Mountain in Pennsylvania, and A-Basin in Colorado all have shorter lifts than this. Replacing this lift with a triple of quad wouldn’t really affect the line speed. This lift should be capable of 500 fpm, but beginner lifts are usually run slower than the average fixed grip.

      This lift is slow because it is for beginners, not because it’s not capable. This lift was created with pieces of the old Deer Point lift (Chair 1) after they installed the high-speed quad. It was plenty fast (for a fixed grip) when it was Deer Point. I’d rather them put money into a new lift that opens new terrain or expands access to the mountain than replace this.
