Northwood #6 – Mt. Spokane, WA

This is the longest Skytrac built to date as of 2019 with 17 towers and 130 chairs.
The Northwood expansion opened up multiple new advanced and intermediate trails on the back side of the mountain.
There is a cool gully near the bottom of the lift.

    Really nice lift. I wonder what kind of deal they worked out with SkyTrac, as they are still fundraising for this lift. It’s nice of SkyTrac to offer flexibility in their payments, but it also seems to have screwed Frost Fire, ND.

    Is that a height adjustable bottom terminal?

      Nope, not height adjustable, the mountain doesn’t usually get enough snow to justify one.
