    If I had a guess, this will be the next lift replaced at Beaver Creek. Perhaps a 6/10 Chondola like Centennial.

    There’s certainly more merit in going with a chondola here than a gondola or a six pack. A chondola would provide the best of both worlds. Gondola cabins for ski school and Nordic ski traffic (McCoy Park will provide a nice secondary beginner pod so that not everyone’s using Red Buffalo). Chairs for everyone else.

    This lift has a pretty rare tower (to my knowledge). On tower two, there is a 2-sheave train on both sides of the lift, which you don’t see on many lifts, especially detachables like this.
