    That’s a pretty cool looking bottom station.

      That’s the Poma “Z-Return.” They’ve been using them for a pretty long time actually. Arapahoe Basin uses it as well.

        They’ve been around since the early 1990s (Winter Park’s Endeavor being one of the earliest, built in 1993).

          First Z return was the old chair 1 at Taos NM 1989

    Such beautiful terrain. Is it really that steep?
