Everybody complains that this lift is slow and that Montage needs a high speed lift. I don’t know if a high speed lift will ever make sense at Montage but what if they installed a conveyor loader under long haul and then cranked the speed wayyy up? I doubt the lift is capably of doing that but thanks for listening to my TED talk anyway
well.. they could bump it up to 500FPM instead of 450..
If there was ever a lift that’s in dire need of being upgraded to high speed, it’s this one. It takes 15 minutes to reach the top. Holiday Valley upgraded two lifts in the several years and it made all the difference in enjoying the day.
