    It sucks that flying squirrel had burned it was nice if you did not want to go down the run all the way. Sad about cold springs lift I hope to see it. Considering that it is its last year! It will be the first riblet I will ever see. Considering I’ve never skied it.

      You should have been there for the single chairs with tarps over the legs. I do miss Squirrel chair but the Cold Springs chair is nice in that it is out of the wind and sunny. But new chair opens 400 acres of off-piste and it opens in ’19.

    Just curious, in the spreadsheet, why are the modified Yan detachables at Sun Valley labeled as being Doppelmayr lifts, while all the other converted Yan detachables are labeled as Yan lifts?

      I try and make a judgment call about the majority of components.

    Do you still have the pictures of the Yan Detachable terminals, grips, chairs, etc in the Cold Springs Boneyard on your computer?
    I’d love to see them and any other pre-modified Yan detachable/ Boneyard Yan pictures. Thanks!

    Given that the YAN HSQs that were built for SV in 88 will be coming up on 30 years or already are, do you think we’ll see some replacements announced in the not too distant future? I realize that Doppie upgraded those lifts in the 90s, however, did they touch the drive gear, or just the carriers?
