    I have not found the exact location on a trail map showing where this lift is but it appears that a gondola was built here the same year that the Eagle Chairlift ceased operations. That is assuming that the information on the lift blog is accurate. The Ptarmigan quad lift was also built in 2008 which could also have something to do with the Eagle Double closing.

    The Eagle chairlift was also 33 years old when they stopped using it so it probably needed significant repairs or upgrades. And a gondola gives a ski area more capacity than a double chairlift at the end of the its useful life. Same with a quad chairlift.
