    When this lift was built, several chairs were removed from the Lookout Triple and used here. This is because the Monadnock Triple at Wachusett was much shorter and had fewer chairs. This also explains the big chair spacing and low capacity. The lift shack placement is similar to the Soleil Express at Tremblant where it is located directly beyond the unloading ramp instead of the usual placement on the side.

      Many lifts at Mammoth, CA do the same thing with the lift shacks. Space was limited and the lift shack was elevated and placed behind the top terminal.

    I wish this lift was a little faster but it is a nice rest sometimes. I love doing spring laps on Koessler and Schneider and riding up this triple. The sky is always a beautiful shade of blue from this lift! I am so glad they got rid of the East double and put this lift in a little farther down. It makes much more sense.
