    Peter have you heard anything strange about the Chondola recently? Apparently there is a rumor (at least I hope its just a rumor) that the cabins have been taken off of the line and will not return during this ski season.

      Sounds like reports of the cabins’ demise were greatly exaggerated.

    When will the Barker Mountain Express be replaced? At this point it runs so slow and just creates lines. Do you think Doppelmayr will come in soon?

    Can you double check the vertical rise for the Spruce Peak chairlift? You report 1207′ and Sunday River website reports 1500′.

      Google Earth shows 1,205’. Someday Bigger may be counting the elevation from the very bottom of White Cap?

      That is what Sugarloafers (and some others) commonly refer to Sunday River as, because no matter how much Les tried to expand SR it would never be as big as its (former) rival, Sugarloaf.

    Might want to add a note on Little White Cap, as it has Leitner-Poma sheaves and chair hangers.

      So does White Heat, Tempest, and Aurora. Poma grips as well.
