    Third life for this lift. The lift started its life in the early 70s as the double bubble F lift at Copper Mt CO. The Lift then moved to big sky in 1989 to became Southern Comfort triple. It was repurposed again to become Dakota

      This lift has now outlived it’s original successor, the American Eagle high speed quad which has since been removed and scrapped.

    Once they replace Explorer with the new Gondola, Dakota will be the only Heron-Poma lift left at Big Sky…
