    I wonder why Stairway got the puck footrests while Outlaw has the traditional T-shaped footrests.

      Remember Donald the chairs on Outlaw right now are temporary. I was told today the permanent ones are still on the high seas somewhere.

        I was under the impression that Doppelmayr made chairs in SLC. Is that only for fixed grip lifts?

          Doppelmayr imports all chairs depending on the model from Asia or Europe, LPOA I believe still builds FG chairs in GJ and imports the detach chairs from Europe, and Skytrac chairs are built in SLC and assembled in your parking lot.

      Outlaw’s chairs are on loan for the year – maybe the new ones will have the puck ones

        It’s unanimous. I wonder if they will bother to reinstall the new ones or just be happy with the discount I’m sure they got from Doppelmayr for drawing the short straw on the year’s new chair supply

          Boyne Resorts needs the loaner chairs back for when Swift Current gets reinstalled at Sugarloaf.

    I think this is one of the shortest chairlifts out there with footrests.

    how come they bought a whole new quad chair, couldent they have saved money by reusing the one they already had?


    • ShangRei Garrett August 24, 2022 / 9:05 pm

      The new quad runs in a different alignment than the old backside of Rays. I’m pretty sure they also sold Rays, so they ended up getting some money to pay for the new lift anyway.
