    I believe this lift is a bottom drive.

      It is. All the lifts at Moonlight are bottom drive except for Pony.

    Why did Doppelmayr use Stealth terminals on this?


    • Collin June 1, 2018 / 5:36 am

      Because it’s not a Doppelmayr. It was built during the short period when the two companies were under the same name but operating separately. Doppelmayr and CTEC built their own products at their own facility but both were sold as Doppelmayr-CTEC.

    I heard that patrol had to perform a rope evac off of Six Shooter yesterday, over a mechanical issue. Has anyone else heard anything about this?


    • Max Hart January 4, 2019 / 5:24 pm

      Didn’t they rope evac Six Shooter last March too?


      • Noah January 4, 2019 / 5:35 pm

        I believe so


    • Jason Craig January 9, 2019 / 7:39 am

      No. There was no rope evac. They were able to get everyone off of it. I was there.

        Thank you for clearing that up, and I apologize for the misinformation. Their must have been a communication error between myself and a friend who was there at the time of it.

    Are they going to put bubble chairs on this?

      Not without some major infrastructure overhaul and maybe complete replacement of the terminals and sheaves.
