Sandy – Saddleback, ME

This is the first Partek lift for Saddleback after numerous Doppelmayr projects.
The lift line is very similar to a former Hopkins double.

    Nice to see a new Partek. When was their last new build?

    Is it me or are those sheaves a beefier design?

      They built two new lifts last year, one at Mount Southington, and one at Trollhaugen.

      Those sheaves were seen on Leitner lifts in the 1970s. Did Leitner give Borvig all the designs that they didn’t need anymore?

      Honestly, I hope that Saddleback gets its fixed-grips from Partek from now on. They could use the business. According to their Wikipedia page, they have been installing only one or two a year for their entire history. Go Partek!
