    The design capacity is 2800 riders/hr, but the lift only has enough chairs (88) to achieve a comfortable 2400 riders/hr (103 chairs would have been required to achieve 2800 riders/hr).

    This thing still spins like a top, 1000fpm all day every day. I always say that the Uni-S/M/L series detachables that Doppelmayr USA built are some of the best lifts on the planet, and North Peak is a prime example.

      I do think the Uni-S/M/L lifts are very well built, and the design is stylish even by today’s standards. But most of the lifts don’t run as fast as this one. The focus with the new design was to be able to make smaller detachable terminals that could fit in more places, and I credit that with allowing detachable lifts to become so much more widespread than just 1 or 2 main lifts.
