    Does this lift only run in the summer ski season?

    In 2013 I rode it in late March, it was my first T bar ride.

    It runs all winter. In fact summer use will be coming to an end in the future as the glacier is receding

      When I was there in the first week of January 2019, it did not run at all. Showcase T-Bar was the only one running. Maybe there was a little bit of maintenance that needed to be done

    Due to glacier recession we need a lot more snow on the T-bar line to make it operable. It may not open this winter. Will need more snow to get it open for summer.

      It currently hasn’t operated at all this year which is quite annoying. I was hoping to ride it and ski the glacier.

        Not to mention it makes getting to 7th Heaven substantially harder. Brutal being able to see the top from Glacier Express and not being able to get to it.

    I thought this lift only operated in the summer.

    A fixed grip quad would be more ideal on this lift line.

    Has this lift been operating this season? I know it didn’t last year.
