    Do you know why the Silver Streak Sxpress is not found on the trail maps from 1983-1997? What terminals did this lift have for an 83 install?

      Silver Streak Express was the original name for the Summit Express which was a detachable triple from 1983-1997 before the current quad went in. The same enclosed terminal buildings were used for both lifts.

        There was also talk that Healy floated the name Sunrise for the lift to the top

    Yellow was actually a Riblet/Yan Hybrid Chairlift. It featured Yan drive and return terminals while the line equipment and carriers were all Riblet.

      The original Yellow chair or chair #3 when it was built replaced a T-Bar. The original had a unloading station that was tough for beginners. It was configured later by Yan using a lot of the original Riblet.

        Thank you Steve. Chair 3 was built in the summer of 1966 the same year the overnight Main Lodge (West Village) was built. Chair 3 became Yellow in November of 1973. Chair three was originally a Riblet as you said. The top and bottom terminals were reconfigured in the summer of 1981by Yan.

    I’ve always been super curious about the original Summit Express high speed triple. I never can find any photos or information on it!

    I’m pretty sure Cloudchaser’s uphill capacity is 2,800 pph, not 2,400 pph.
