Snowdon Six Express – Killington, VT

The Snowdon Six Express was one of three new lifts built at Killington in 2018. The other two were relocated from other parts of the mountain while the six pack was brand new from Leitner-Poma.

    Does this Six bubble have heated seats like the one at okemo? I did not feel anything and I rode it last weekend when temp was in 10s so i would assume not.

      No, it does not. Sunburst is the only LPA bubble chair with heated seats. I’m surprised more haven’t been built.

        Quantum Six better feature them. As should Green Ridge’s chairs during the relocation from Quantum Four.

          I doubt it’s easy to add heated seats to existing lifts

    Various lifts in Austria have after-market heated seats.

    This lift’s bubble closure is interesting. The bubbles seem to slam shut in videos, unlike Sunburst Six and Bluebird. That can’t be good for the chairs at all

      I noticed this too, with that technique, the bubbles won’t last long, really poor design.
