    As much as I’m not a fan of LP designs, the LPA terminal looks great in black. Shame it’s not built more like this.

      Even as a Leitner-Poma fan, this color choice really does put other LPAs to shame.

        The resort chooses the color of the top and the siding color.

    This lift is great and all but it really doesn’t need to be six

      Going off the numbers in the spreadsheet, this lift has the same capacity as any other triple. Keep in mind, the size of a carrier does not determine the capacity of a lift.

      How do you figure? This lift is jam packed on any weekend during high season and on powder days.
