Heaven’s Gate – Sugarbush, VT Poma built this triple chair as to access the summit of Lincoln Peak. The bottom station is one of many Alpha models at Sugarbush with a portal tower 1. One of the stranger towers I’ve seen. Looking back down the lift line. Lower section of the lift. Overview of the bottom two thirds. View back down the lift line. Breakover towers.

Sugarbush will replace this lift next, the question is what they replace it with. Super Bravo has a ton of hours on it and breaks down quite often, thus resulting them to not run it at full speed. Gate House has very long lines and might be replaced by a six-pack. The question is if they relocate Gate House or Super Bravo to replace Heaven’s Gate or if they build a ground-up Doppelmayr UNI-G detachable quad.
Think relocating gate house or super bravo for a six pack would be cool. Though refurbishments are likely needed. I also hope they extend this lift down to the bottom of castle rock.
On Peter’s news roundup it appears this lift will indeed be getting replaced, but not in 2023. Wonder if they will keep it for something else?
This lift broke down today due to a faulty brake, causing clicking noises around the bull wheel. Was down from 9:30 until 1:00.
