    The Lakeview lift was upgraded with safety bars in summer 2020. This allows Lakeview to load ski school students that were not allowed to ride prior to adding the bars.

      This map gives the suggestion the high speed quad will end a bit uphill from where the triple offloads.

    According to the news release from Mt. Rose, the chairs from this lift will not be available for sale when replaced because it has been sold to another ski report. Peter, do you have any idea who may have purchased it?

    The chair couldn’t quite make it to finish its final season at Rose. :-(

    The following was posted today on the conditions page on the Mt. Rose website regarding the status of Lakeview:

    Due to maintenance items that can’t be rectified, the 42-year-old Lakeview lift is now officially and permanently retired. The lift will not operate again this season. The good news this summer a new detachable high-speed quad lift will replace it. The lift will load in the same location and unload further uphill, providing access to additional terrain.

      This may explain why they decided to replace Lakeview prior to working on the Atoma lift area.

      This will make it a tough season for Rose on windy days. Without Lakeview, when Northwest is on wind hold, this will leave Wizard and Galena as the only lifts to operate on windy days. These chairs only serve beginner runs. :-(

        The new Lakeview lift isn’t that much longer than the Triple. Ends at the little lip beyond the current unloading.

    I know that; I was referring to the remainder of this ski season. ;-)

    The new HSQ will be a great addition to the fleet; especially on those windy days when Northwest is on wind hold.

    I’m a fan of the offset towers and light side flyovers on most lifts where they’re used, but on this one it seems dumb. There’s no cliff or feature where it would make sense. The light side is the same height as the loaded side.


    • Donald Reif January 21, 2022 / 10:17 pm

      If anything, the light side looks lower than the loaded side in a few of the pictures.

    I was looking at the webcams today and the chairs were removed this week as they prepare for the install of the HSQ.


  7. Danny Bryant April 28, 2022 / 4:24 pm

    The cable was removed on Monday, and the webcams show that the top station has been disassembled except for the mast and the sheaves have been removed from the top two towers. However, the bottom station is hidden in the trees on the webcam, so I am unable to determine its present condition. I am glad to know this lift will have a new home at Dodge Ridge. :-)

    The towers were removed and flown to the parking lot yesterday. The drive station was removed by truck this morning. All that remains is the mast for the return terminal at the top. Bring on the new LPA HSQ!

    Go to the Mt. Rose website and click on the new Lakeview lift coming in 2022 – 2023. It has some pretty cool lift removal pictures.
    The lift will be totally re-furbished prior to its installation at Dodge including lifting frames and catwalks on the towers, new Drive and Controls, new Bullwheel bearings, haulrope, etc..

    Thanks Kirk for the update. I have the link to the pics here:

    It is nice to see the old lift get a second life at Dodge Ridge. I still have to say you all did a fantastic job getting those towers off the mountain in not exactly ideal conditions; it was very impressive.

      Patience. Looks to be a nice lift. Plus, the fact that it has footrests is a nice bonus.

        I don’t understand the fascination with footrests. They are a rarity out west (in and around Tahoe anyway) and they can be inconvenient for snowboarders because the boards usually are at an angle when riding the lift (disclosure–I’m a skier and have never had a desire to board, but know from my snowboard friends that keeping the board straight on the lift is very uncomfortable). Maybe I’m old school, but the need for footrests and heated seats seems overrated. Footrests are more in the way for lift riders and heated seats are overkill (after all, this is a winter sport, dress for it).

        My rant is done, but c’mon people! I bet the footrests will be gone from the new chair in one to two seasons.


        • Ian D December 2, 2022 / 10:14 pm

          As a snowboarder the foot rests are only useable if I’m the only one on the lift. I can sit in the middle and shimmy the board between the two rests, and it is quite nice. If there’s any skiers with me forget the bar at that point.


    • Donald Reif December 1, 2022 / 10:14 pm

      Well Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe has some pictures on their website.

    I rode Lakeview Express for the first time today (it began operation last weekend) and it is a definite game-changer for Rose! It alleviates more traffic from Northwest than I had expected. It was fun watching the crew load the chairs onto the lift as I rode up Northwest to get Lakeview ready for Thanksgiving weekend. It was the talk of the day. Now, long-time Rose skiers are very pleased to have a high speed lift available when Northwest goes on windhold.
