    So, is Woodward owned by power, cause it seems like it is mostly at powdr resorts, or If it is something else could someone explain it to me?
    Thanks

      Powdr bought the Woodward brand and facilities in 2011. Most of the Woodward locations are now at Powdr resorts but there is one licensed location in Mexico.

    This lift must run at a very low speed of no more than 240 fpm given the close chair spacing. But since it’s a beginner lift, that’s not a bad thing.

    So this lift services a beginner quasi terrain park?
