    Wait, they’re replacing galaxy? Why was it replaced, also is this why it was closed?

      I heard that the lift is unpopular and climate change. They are adding snowmaking along with it too.

      It was down due to wear and tear, and it just made more sense to replace it with an up-to-date Doppelmayr than to repair it.

    So in skilifts.org you see the yan tram is it still around it was called the ridge gondola

      It got replaced by a funicular. I can imagine that that old Yan tram was very cool, but also really hard to maintain (find parts for).

    Sky really needs a backup lift because it’s the only way to get back to Nevada and the Gondola from California. When it goes down, a lot of people are stranded. A lift from the bottom of Sky/Canyon to the top of Dipper would be fantastic. But then again, Heavenly has only received one new lift in the past twelve years and it is a long triple that is useless as an intermediate lift not being a detachable quad.

      Ridge used to be Sky’s backup lift, but it was for the pod itself and didn’t have access to the Nevada access trail.

      Your idea is practical, a high speed quad from bottom of Sky and Canyon to the top of Dipper. Or maybe have it end at the scenic lookout at the top of Pinnacles.
