    The colour schemes on this lift remind me of Steven’s Pass WA, except without the green. I’m not quite sure what I think about it.

    Lifting frame 2 is from 2005 because it has the square reinforcements and it’s all dark and old. I wonder where that lifting frame came from.

      Good spot. Likely leftover from the Wildwood Express -> Giant Steps Express move.

    Since this is a beginner detachable of sorts, how fast does it run? Nothing like a fresh lift!

      Decently fast because it has about 8 second load intervals. Capacity needs to be kept up a bit but also easy enough for beginners.

    I think Doppelmayr hardware looks so much better than the LPA stuff. Wish we had more dopp in Colorado!

      Can’t blame Colorado resorts for wanting to go local, with LPA having a factory in Grand Junction.. Buy local, support local.. That’s ok with me. LPA and Doppie do a great job and I am happy to support both.
