    This lift replaced a T-bar that ended at the current mid station. You can tell it didn’t extend further because the line above the mid station is not skiable. This lift is supposed to be replaced by a fixed grip quad as early as 2020. It will end slightly higher on the other side of the Sunway trail to allow widening to take place at the current terminal location.

    The liftline is parallel and adjacent to the old Gondola line. Looking up from the base, the gondola was to the left of Sunway and then continued past its terminus for another 2,000 feet or so before hitting its mid-station.

    It would be cool if it could be extended to the old gondola midstation and have a couple trails cut from there.

    Since this and High peaks are getting replaced, does anyone know what’s happening to the chairs?

      Apparently a couple towers and some chairs were strung across the entry road at the beginning of the parking lot, for reasons I can’t quite fathom.

        Oh wait, those have been there a while. Must have been from an older Gore double.
