    Hey Peter, do you remember that Lake Louise master plan that came out a year or two ago? I’m trying to create a Google Earth overlay for it, but I can seem to locate it on the web. Do you have a link to it, by any chance?

    Hi Peter, A few bits to add. Before Eagle chair there was an Eagle Poma going up the run of that name. Olympic chair should have a vertical a good chunk more than Glacier, and near about that of the Griz Gondi. I suspect the last unnamed one is the Oly chair and the stats for the Oly chair may be for Eagle Poma – just a guess. The original VonnRoll Gondi ran until about 1993 or so. I rode it in 1991 I believe.

      It looks like the Eagle Poma was an early 60-s style detachable pomalift judging from these pictures:

        Terminal appears to be a T50 Poma terminal, which was in production from the mid 50s to the early 60s.

          I enjoy how Poma named all of its chairlift terminals and models, but gave abrupt alphanumeric designations to its surface lifts. Our remaining one is an F10; original Storm King was a J100, the old one at Loveland was an H90, and so on.

    Olympic and Eagle have had remnants removed this year. Was looking forward to it, and then they weren’t there.

    The old Glacier triple was not a Yan, it Was a Murray-Latta, judging by the tower/sheave design.

      Murray-Latta for sure. I see their unique double-pivot guide sheaves behind the Molson can.

    Before the larch chair, there was a detachable pomalift running up the run (aptly named) Larch Poma. It started from the Temple Lodge up to the top of the Larch area.
