    There is a typo on the spreadsheet on the little cat double. In the notes section.

    I will miss the wildcat triple. It was a classic thoinkol. They have been removing many ctec and thoinkols. I dont get why they do not sale them? does any one know why? they removed majestic from brighton and it was made in 1955 and it sold. Why not sale the newer lifts?

    Snowbasin is owned by a multi-billion company. Snowbasin’s sister resort Sun Valley has given away lifts for free to other ski areas. Maybe no one was interested?

    I would be interested if I had land. I’ve been trying to get the lift…but snowbasin has been so difficult to contact.

    Does anyone know if little cat sold?

      Nope, it was scrapped in 2008. The chairs were sold off (I got me one) and a few parts of the lift made it I believe to Powder Mtn and Nordic Valley for their thiokol doubles at the time.

    There just isn’t any demand for a 40+ year old lift when there are 15-30 year old lifts on the market. They are great lifts, no doubt about it but just no demand.

    so just a few days ago i went up to snow basin to cheek out the progress. I fond both operator shacks in the parking lot. so the top operator shacks door was open so I went in and i found something on the controls. it said if the rollback button isn’t on push stop the lift and press restart. Because wildcat was not a very busy lift when I went up in winter. I think It had to do with the rollback on the controls how it would not light up.

    The website says that John paul has dual tensioning. Probably because how long the lift is and all of the ups and downs on the lift line too.

      Oh yeah dont forget to add Allen peak’s new tower in the spreadsheet.

    Wildcat chairlift is finished and not in construction anymore.

    I found some old lift information you can add to the spreadsheet.

    I was told in a instagram post that the old becker and porcupine were built by Poma telecar

    The old porcupine platter (Before the double chair) ran from 1956-1961

    Then the porcupine double ran from 1961-1986

    The becker double chair ran from 1959-1987 Bottom drive

    The Wildcat single chair 1948 Bottom drive

    The Wildcat double 1964-1985 Bottom drive

    Also you have the drive and tensioning switched up on porcupine triple. Drive is at the top and the tensioning is at the bottom. Check the video I posted on the comments of porcupine.

    Anyone know where I can find pictures of this so called underground parking garage for needles and John Paul Jones?

    On wildcat express someone broke one of the loading gates closest to the return bullwheel and they are loading wildcat with 5 people only. I posted here because there is no comments enabled on wildcat express.
