News Roundup: Co-Op

News Roundup: Modifications

  • Apparently Cannon Mountain in New Hampshire will get the first LST Ropeways lift in North America. ¬†Manufactured in Germany, it will be a T-Bar for the Mittersill racing area which has an existing¬†Doppelmayr CTEC double chair. ¬†SkyTrac will be doing the installation.¬† LST Ropeways is owned by the MND Group which also owns Gazex (avalanche release¬†systems) and Sufag (snowmaking systems) with a North American facility in Eagle, CO.
  • Leitner-Poma will re-engineer and modify towers on the Grey Mountain lift at Red Mountain, BC this fall. ¬†The quad chair was built in 1992 at Alyeska and moved to Red in 2013. ¬†The re-installation was done by Summit Lift Co. of Fernie, BC and the lift has 18 towers in its current configuration. ¬†No word on the exact reason for the re-design.
  • The Camelot chair at Boyne Highlands is losing its vault drive terminal that¬†is literally part of the ski area’s base lodge.¬† In its place will be a used CTEC drive terminal. ¬†Does anyone know where it came from?
  • The Aspen Daily News reports¬†on the all new High Alpine detachable quad at Snowmass.
  • Snow King debuted Doppelmayr’s new ‘Alpinstar’ terminal this summer and now Caberfae Peaks, MI will debut the ‘Ministar’ in 2016.¬† The new triple chair will replace the Clubhouse double which is a 1967 Hall.
  • ¬†Developers are still trying to figure out how to get a new Lift 1A back into downtown Aspen like the original single chair.
