    This was one of the last Spacejet terminals made by Doppelmayr, as they started making Uni G’s the following year

    This lift is great and all, but I miss the old Riblet. It had a standard old-school load ramp (i.e., don’t drop the rope to the skiers, make the skiers sidestep up to the rope) and I recall many years where we had enough snow to have to ski *down* to the load board.

      I got to build the that ramp on the latest closing day they have had in a long time. 14 July. (or was it 11 July? Anyway.) I and some patrollers made it with some ice blocks from the bottom of West Face and anger and some pulaskis. Last day on rear entry boots, coincidentally. Good times.

    I rode this lift yesterday, and it has 50 chairs.
