    I love that shade of forest green on the terminals.

      I didnt think i’d see the day that I found an LPA terminal to look attractive or modern, but this colour scheme makes this LPA terminal look on par with what Doppelmayr offers. Bravo to whoever chose this colour scheme, because it looks great

        By contrast, most LPA terminals tend to leave that top part gray or beige, and the colored part of the terminal is limited.

        Gray (in cases like Copper’s LPAs, Vail’s LPAs, the Kensho SuperChair, etc.):

        Or beige (in the case of Breck’s LPAs):

          The black-on-black on Base to Base’s angle station looks pretty sharp too.

    Is there anything left for A-Basin to do at this point? I get the sense that the resort is going to be pretty static for quite a while now.

      I would assume they’re pretty much done; my completely unfounded prediction is that their next move will be making Zuma detachable, probably in like 15 years.
