    Could this have been relocated from Ski Chantecler’s closed area?

      It’s a possibility, but I doubt it. Chantecler’s three 1985 Doppelmayr lifts all have (or had) the same motor room design, different from this design they used. And, the plastic slats on all chairs were blue, while Dynastar has green plastic slats.

      (There’s a good Remontees Mecaniques report on the ski Chantecler lift here: https://www.remontees-mecaniques.net/bdd/reportage-tsf3-b-doppelmayr-4990.html)

    This lift came from “Ski Wentworth” in Nova Scotia. It was know as the green chair.

      Why did they remove it, leaving the blue chair as the only lift.

        It was kind of overkill for Wentworth to have 2 Quad chairs, and 2 t-bars. The old Glades quad (as it was known) served a small black terrain pod that can be easily reached by the blue chair. My guess is that the hill was in a tough financial spot and smartly decided to let go of one of your chairs (which probably never ran anyway), and not close any terrain. They still have 1 t-bar that runs with the quad though.

          I see what you mean. Wentworth kinda went a little overkill.

    The lift came to Morin Heights with very low hours on it and from what I have heard was under-utilized at Ski wentworth. The lift was installed around 2000ish
