      There have only been four ski areas in North America who bought or have high-speed triples. Summit Express @ Mt. Bachelor (Doppelmayr / Replaced in 97), Gore Mountain (VonRoll / Removed), Ruthies @ Aspen (POMA) & Alta (Garaventa CTEC).

        In Europe, there are a lot. My favorite lift is the Kumme-Rothorn detachable triple. I believe it is a Garaventa built in 1983. It is very noisy and uncomfortable but that’s what makes it fun!
