    This is an odd lift.

        1 the terminal design I’ve never seen terminals like it made from riblet usually the bottom has the drive on the frame but instead it’s at the top with a weird motor room
        2 the sheeves this one take close examination normal riblet sheeves have spokes instead of a solid wheel like ctec compared to Doppelmayr sheeves

    This lift teases me every time… I have never ridden on a Riblet quad chairlift in my life, despite growing up in the PNW where I was surrounded by Riblets.

    I’ve visited Hoodoo twice and both times this lift wasn’t open! They treat this lift and the part of the mountain it serves as a peak day exclusive, much like Angel Peak at 49 Degrees North.

      Mt. Baker has 2 Riblet quads as well.
