    I think they removed this lift recently because it no longer appears on the trail map on their website.

      As of two weeks ago, it was still standing. But it would not surprise me at all if Vail has axed it from the operation. I will try and find out more.

        It may remain standing, just out of service. Similar to The Devils Fiddle Quad At Kaillington, how it wasn’t taken down entirley

    I wonder how many Roebling and Hopkins are left on ski hills.. there are a good number at fairs/amusement parks.. thankfully.. (I grew up riding the one at Lagoon in Utah)

      There’s a Hopkins double at Saddleback, ME.

    Great little lift. Sunapee kept it fairly pristine. The pace was slow but pleasant and it put you right where you needed to be for kids’ races.
