    Okay, so what mountain gets a new lift and doesn’t put any effort into restoring it to make it look fresh. They hardly even made an effort with this lift. Also, why did they install this lift? It’s completely unnecessary to have two fixed grip triples practically serving the same terrain.

      This lift was definitely rushed. I think they wanted it done ASAP to show that they were going to invest in Catamount. They installed this lift because the Meadows Triple often had long lines. This lift helps shorten them, and serves the terrain parks and some nice green rated trails.

    This lift has an interesting history. In 1986 it was scheduled to be installed as the Eclipse Triple at Tenney, NH. Work was stopped after lawsuits by both Tenney and Poma, and the lift was finished by Borvig in 1987. Then what was left of the Poma installation was sold to and installed at Magic Mountain, VT as the Sun Corner Triple, where the Green Chair runs today. When Magic was liquidated in 1995, the Sun Corner Triple was removed and went to Berkshire East where it was installed as the Summit Triple. Then it was replaced by a SkyTrac Quad in 2014 and sat in storage. It was thought that this lift would be reinstalled at Berkshire East as part of its North Face Expansion, but that changed in May of 2018 when the owners of Berkshire East acquired Catamount and proceeded to install this lift here before the 2018-19 season.
