    Is there a development up there now? Last time I was there, it was all woods.

      As of now, development has been limited to the bottom area and about 800 feet along the lift. Some massive homes. Some slope side. Some setback in forest.

    I don’t see anyone doing a HST any time soon as the same capacity can be had with a quad or even a six and there are many advantages of using the larger lift.

    Do poma lifts from this time have the lifting frames? If so why does this lift (and other poma triples here) not have them.

    This lift bears the distinction of being the only Poma keeping this part of the mountain from being segregated as the Doppelmayr section of the hill, since the other three lifts around it (Woodward, Kokomo and Timberline) are all Doppelmayrs.

      The old Kokomo was a poma too.

      Pure coincidence. At one point we had three Pomas, three Yans, and a Heron serving this side.

    Does this have Yan towers? Riding it now and wondering if it was relocated from somewhere else

      The towers on this lift appear to be original Poma towers without lifting frames. Yan towers have a different appearance where the cross arm connects to the tower.

    When do they plan to replace this lift with a hsq? It is badly in need for an upgrade.

      Is it, though? The only cats qualified to make that call are the mechanics. Say, if they’re spending all day fixing problems or can’t get parts, then yes. Otherwise, no. The rest is marketing.

        Mechanically this lift will spin for a while longer. I do weekly inspections during the winter and standard maintenance in the summer. There’s very little about it that bugs me, except the lack of lifting frames on the towerheads. Operationally it could use an upgrade to K-lift status- 1800 pph, 4 m/s, long load interval. That should make it run continuously without stopping and slowing all the time.
