    In the last picture, I couldn’t help but notice that this lift has Doppelmayr CTEC style panels. Anyone know why that is, especially considering this is a full dopp?

    I’m sure they were given the option and they opted for the CTEC panels as they are easier to use for lift operators and probably are less expensive.

    This is actually a top-drive lift, so the top terminal isn’t the return station. That’s a distinction it only shares with Lookout, also on Mount Mansfield.

    The current FourRunner actually has more towers than the old one, as the original only had 18 towers vs. the current’s 22. It also looks like they reused a lot of the original tower foundations.

    This was what the bottom and top terminals used to look like:

      It’s even a smidge longer than the original FourRunner, as the upper terminal was originally directly next to the Octagon Cafe instead of slightly uphill from it.

    This lift always runs very close to top speed.

    This lift is the probably my favorite to lap. It gets 2000 vertical in less than 6 minutes.
