    This is the only detachable here with a normal-length ride time, with the other 2 having ride times of under 3 minutes. It is also the only lift to have footrests, at least as of when I last went here 2 years ago

    Why did the use the “Garaventa-style” chair on this lift? Most of the lift that are similar to this one have the rounder CTEC style chairs.

      Because it was Garaventa CTEC, you had the option. When we planned the new quads at Baker in the early 2000s we specced the Garaventa carriers because they’re easier to stuff kids on than the CTEC carriers, due to the Garaventa bail being swept back out of the way.

    Will this lift be scrapped when the 6-pack goes in next year? It’s only 25 years old
