    Now all that’s left is for the resort to build the upper Juniper HSQ, and this lift will become much more useful.

      The best terrain at Louise are the north facing shots off this lift in my opinion. And, given how challenging the old platter could be, this is a huge improvement.

    what does it mean when it has slats on the chair for wind resistance

      Meaning of slats for wind resistance: take a look at the back of each chair. The backrests are plastic slats: a narrow one inch or slightly wider plastic rail with air gaps between them so the wind can blow through the back of the chair. If the seat back was a solid material, high winds would catch the chair and rock it back and forth.

    Hallelujah! The death platter is dead.
