    This lift replaced the Summit Triple on a new alignment up the Comet trail. I believe this was done to give it easier access to the Morningstar expansion that was built the next year. The Summit Triple was relocated to the looker’s right side of the Rocket trail to replace the North Double, a Carlevaro and Savio lift that was original to the mountain. Its twin, the South Double on the lookers left side of the Rocket trail, was replaced by the Summit Triple in 1984.

    Cool to see you got out to my area! I’ve videoed all these lifts in the past years

    Looks like there’s a chair in pic number 5 that has no footrests.

      Good eye! Rode this lift yesterday, noticed that chair 17 didn’t have a footrest. Pretty sure (based on position of Chair 12 in the photo) it’s the same one.
