    Does an 8 pack really need to go here? I skied this Loon a couple of times and it’s bad some days, but not a ton.

      It’s going to be an 8 pack with capacity less than the max a 6 pack can do — it’s marketing.

        Speaking of marketing, I remember chatting with a Ragged Mt. NH rep at the Boston Ski Show the year they were putting in their Six Pack. He said, it was “only $60k more than a HSQ”, the publicity is worth it. That was 2002, they still have the only HSS in NH.

        6 packs “can” do slightly more than this lift will, but doppelmayr recommends against it. The max you can really effectively do with a 6 is 3200 pph, any higher than that and the loading interval becomes too small. Often 6 packs which advertise 3600 an hour don’t run full speed meaning they don’t actually achieve design capacity.

        Just look at vail, they used to build 3600 an hour 6 packs but after several attempts to reconfigure the loading area to make it more effecient they gave up and the newest 6 pack was built with the max recommended capacity of 3200 pph.

    Was this lift scrapped?

      No. It is being refurbished to be reinstalled elsewhere in the Boyne network. The most likely reinstallation location is back at Loon to replace Seven Brothers in Summer 2022.
