    This is one of the two lifts with a conveyor loading system at Park City. The other is 3 Kings. (Fixed Triple) Both Doppelmayr.

      Both of those have ‘King’ in their name. Coincidence? *I don’t think so*

    Any idea why this six pack has such a narrow gauge?

      It’s not the 6.1 meter gauge, but it is the North American standard.

        Ah ok thanks, that’s interesting! Afaik there’s no UNI-G six-pack here in Europe which doesn’t use the 6.1m gauge. I’m guessing that’s also why 6.1 m tower heads need to be imported by Doppelmayr USA?

    Park City might want to look into building another lift out of King Con’s base. If anything ever happens to King Con, all of the skiers in the area are stuck at the bottom with nowhere to go. I am not even sure where it would/should go.

    I think it would be a high speed quad running from the bottom of King Con to the Summit House, functioning as the reliever lift for Silverlode.

    There are tons of places where riding a single-dependency lift is the only way out of the terrain pod. Doubtful they would build a lift in the King Con area specifically for this reason.

    This is do different than High Noon Express at Vail, Rose Bowl at Beaver Creek, Wayback at Keystone (techincally is a flat egress/road out), Montezuma at A-Basin, Beavers at A-Basin (technically has an egress but its EX terrain), and may other lifts at many other resorts.

    Those terminals are stunning, especially when you see them after the riding through the hideous and loud terminals on the red pine gondola
