    The “Alpinstar” drive must be a Uni-Star drive with tensioning on it.

      It’s more comparable to a SkyTrac Monarch drive.

        Yeah, but it has the same motor house design as the Uni-Star.

        So basically it’s like a mix of the Uni-Star and the monarch.

    I think the Alpen Star looks better than the Tri-Star. What do you think, Peter?

      I like both of them. It’s nice Doppelmayr seems to have finally settled on a few designs rather than the crazy number of options after the merger (Aurora, Eclipse, Orion, Galaxy, Gemini, Intrepid, Northstar, Northstar LT, Pegasus, Sprint, Uni-Star, Uni-DT etc.)

        I wish Leitner-Poma had gone with the consistency strategy and modeled a fixed terminal after the LPA. Even if it was just a new terminal skin for the Alpha.

    The old triple was pretty unique, but this is a nice upgrade. With the new HSQ this year I think that more folks will consider skiing here. It is a pretty cool place to ski. I wonder when they will replace Flathead.

    Once the new lifts go in, this won’t be the only lift on the hill with footrests.

    The new ones are painted red while this one is called Red but painted green

      I mean, it’s called Red’s because it’s named for Robert Redford. But you’re right, they really should either repaint the lift or rename it Green’s for consistency purposes.
