Lift 1 – Taos, NM

In 2018, this Leitner-Poma high speed quad replaced two fixed grip chairlifts out of the base village.
The new lift was built by Leitner-Poma.

    Why not a six-pack to keep the same capacity?

    Capacity was not an issue the double only had around 900 pph and only ran occasionally, ride time, comfort and summer operations were big drivers for the upgrade.

    Does Taos have any more plans for detachables? I could see lift 4 or 8 being upgraded.
