The best part about riding this lift is passing from Alberta to British Columbia at tower 16. It’s the only lift in Canada that spans two provinces.

    Looking at a map, seems like Dipper at Heavenly starts in Nevada and ends in California, so this isn’t the only lift in NA that crosses a state/province.

    Also, interestingly, the top terminal of Comet seems to be split between the two states.

      Great Divide Express starts and ends in Alberta, ’cause by tower 18, they have another sign welcoming you back into Alberta.

    It’s actually called Great Divide Express. Not Continental Divide Express.

      That is a recent change. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Great Divide was the name for the previous Hall double in this alignment.

    I believe also the Standish Express top terminal is partly in British Columbia… It’s not just this lift.
