      It’s not removed yet either, so it would be listed under operating status. Operating status is for lifts that regularly operate and is not determined by whether the ski areas is open for skiing or not.

        The Kanc is being replaced. It closed early this year (as well as the base it serves) to facilitate its demolition and the construction of its replacement — the Kank8.

          They closed the lift last weekend to remove it and build the new Kank8. Until the new lift is built and the photos are taken it will still be listed as operating.

          @Big Mountain Peter will list it as removed when the lift is fully removed and Kanc 8 will be under the status under construction until it starts operating.

    The length listed for Kissin Cousins is way too long. I am not sure what it is, but based on the ride time and the fact it is way less than half of the length of Kanc, it is definitely less than half of the 3043 feet listed.

      KC is 1287’ long. Peter’s length is directly from the 1986 SAM Lift Construction Survey but it’s wrong. Even the longer version of KC (1986-95) was only 1500’ long

      I rode it this past weekend while at Loon, but I did not take any pictures (sorry, I am sure Peter will make it there eventually). It was extremely comfortable, loading was easy with the carpet and gates, and it is noticeably faster than the previous quad. The bottom terminal building is also massive. One of the people I skied with called it the greatest lift he’s ever been on while another called it the most unnecessary and over the top machine.

      video of kanc8

      I will say, the indoor liftline is probably a pain for the resort but could be really nice for guests on rainy days.

        There’s also a video in there of the loading process…

    Why is Seven Brothers marked as removed? It is still operating

      I had some time today and went ahead and marked all the outgoing lifts as removed and incoming lifts as under construction. It makes more sense to do them all at once.

    Kissin Cousin used to be longer. That whole area got redone, perhaps twice. You can see the old summit footer, and orignal taller, more direct beginner trail off of L. Speakeasy.

      I think that change happened in the late 90s. I can’t remember if this was before or after they shortened it, but that was the only lift-serviced snow-tubing area I ever saw — the tubes were attached to hooks on the chairs, and people tubed down the zig-zaggy beginner trail like it was a luge course. I suspect that was too intense to be a good idea but it was fun at the time!

    The Seven Brothers HSQ is getting a new UNI-G terminal skin on the top terminal with the same color scheme as Kanc 8 to replace the original Spacejet skin. So far only the one on the top terminal has been installed, but a similar skin will probably be put on the bottom terminal. Photos: https://www.newenglandskiindustry.com/viewstory.php?storyid=998

    Loon was one of my locals back in the day but I don’t think I’ve gone there since the Booth Creek days. Is the little steam train from East to West Basin still there? I loved that thing! Maybe it needs an entry here. :)

      It sure is! The engineer school seems to have fallen by the wayside since the pandemic began, though.

        That’s great. Might need to extend it to South Peak, not sure I’ve seen a resort of Loon’s size have four different base areas before.

          I would love to see that. However, Kanc8 and a bunch of condos, among other things, are in the way.
