    Mayflower lift could use a replacement beacuse it is a long Yan triple built in 1984

    This won’t be replaced until they get started on a large new real estate development called Mayflower. Personally I hope they don’t hurry with that, as Mayflower terrain is always empty and the runs are long. I’ve just started seeing ads for it:

    Red Cloud is the only other fixed chair at DV with any need for replacement, and that one is much more well traveled. That is still probably a few years away.

    Is mayflower one of the few yan lifts left with aluminum sheaves?


    • Max Hart March 30, 2020 / 2:23 pm

      I count 19 lifts with this specific assembly type that are still running, however the sheaves themselves vary.
      The style of assembly (and the black hubcap sheaves) were first used in 1982 on Killington’s Northeast Passage Triple and Mount Snow’s Challenger Triple (possibly others). They evolved over the years. Eventually the original black hubcap sheaves morphed into the sheaves seen on Yan’s later fixed grips (with type 6 grips) and Yan’s detachables. Challenger has a bunch of different sheave variants, some of which are unique (however some of them just have missing hubcaps).

    Does anyone know when this lift will open this year


    • Butterside January 10, 2021 / 7:53 pm

      Mayflower is always the last lift to open at DV. In the 2017-2018 season, which was also a very low snowfall season, Mayflower didn’t open until around January 27.
