    This is basically the same sort of reskin that Shedhorn 4 got, though the only real indication of this is the older style lifting frames on the lift towers because DT grips have been used on lifts with normal UNI G terminals.

      Shedhorn was a DS chair so not the same really, Spacejet uni was much more advanced and use the DT-104 grip, which is still installed new on uni-G’s to this day.

    And they sure run this thing at the maximum speed.

    It’s too bad, I think the Spacejet terminals were the best looking terminals that Doppelmayr has made. To me, the lift looks worse now than it used to.

    I think the lift looks great. Obviously no idea how it will treat the customers or the lift mechanics, but from the photos, it’s a great endorsement of refurbing 90s Dopp detachables over spending the big bucks on a new one. It helps that this new Loon color scheme is really sharp.

    It is quite interesting to me how small the lines are here compared to the gondola’s. The large disparity made sense before this lift’s installation, as the route to Loon Peak required two slow fixed-grips as an alternative to the warm gondola cabins. And although this lift definitely has more users than its fixed-grip predecessor, the wait is rarely greater than a couple of minutes while the gondola line continues to snake around the building.

      I’ve noticed people will line up for gondolas, regardless of the terrain. Here at Mammoth, I’ve seen days where chair 1 and 23 are open, effectively giving the most efficient and lappable expert pow terrain, and a 45 min line waiting for the gondola to possibly open to the top.

      Why? It’s the easiest load/unload, you can bail on the effort and download, you get that insta photo from the top… then there’s the out of towner’s whose trail map studying concluded with “top=best”, and cliques of wealthy boomers that only want to ride together, face to face, chatting about dinner and what their different kids are doing.

      Similar reasoning has applied at most other alt-gondolas or trams I’ve been to recently. It’s a nice controlled environment for those that… aren’t really there to ski. Or whose ski day is fine being 4 total laps.
