    Do you guys think that in 2019 they will replace Eagle Express or Sunrise? I went to Eagle a few weeks ago and found Doppelmayr sheaves.

      I don’t think that’s right. I have a 2009-10 trail map showing it.

      It’s an 09. It went in one year after the twin quads. Skimap.org is currently not functioning on my end, but you should be able to find the trail map Peter was referring to on there.

    Sunrise, apex/inspiration, powderhorn, moonbeam triple and summit would of originally had a drive with counterweight tensioning and looked very similar to summit at snow king they were retrofitted with new drives in 1989 by ctec

      Apex’s terminal was moved in 1993
      Other info
      There was 2 inspiration doubles one from 1957 partially homemade and partially built by reobling and the 1977 one which became apex
      Then the moonbeam double built in 1957 partially homemade and partially built by reobling which was replaced in 1977 by moonbeam triple which had 2 alignments
      Then the poma lift which was installed in 1957 by poma there were some parts in the boneyard a couple of years ago

      No, but it’s basically the same as an F-10 (slightly higher horsepower is all). Same towers, terminals, and sticks. Check the photos of our Gem lift on Peter’s Copper page.

    Something interesting I’ve found over the past few days was that powderhorn double (the thoikol one) it had a six leg terminal too just like Ellis at home wood
