    2 Things:

    1. In the second picture, why did they repaint the first tower but not the all the others?
    2. They removed the very last number chair on the lift, why? They did the same with Olympia.

      For #1 I don’t understand why they would do that but it could be because the paint was significantly damaged or eroded.
      For #2 it’s probably just to create a larger end gap.

        They don’t seem to have the end gap anymore:

      Looking at my footage, it appears as they removed it and increased chair spacing, because the last chair provided by Donald is chair 69 and the footage for mine also ends at chair 69, mine has the large gap worth possibly 2 chair spans.

    Here’s the old Riblet that used to run on the lift line:

    Does this lift run on 900fpm often? I feel like it goes on 800 more. Maybe because of a large amount of beginner skiers.

      This and Gemini are likely to run on the slower side because of beginners. Gemini definitely. Prospector has it hit hard because it’s got a bit of everything off it and it’s also a through lift for accessing Vasquez Ridge from the Winter Park base.

        Gemini runs at 750FPM. Prospector usually runs 800-900.
