TGV – Tremblant, QC

The TGV quad is a play on words, a nod to the high speed trains in France. The lift can go up to 1,100 feet per minute.

    When the fire happened in 2014, they had to replace the motor, and since it was an unscheduled retrofit, they could only use what was immediately available. The new motor can’t spin the lift as fast as the original, so the top speed is now only 1000 feet per minute.

    Tremblant got lucky, Marble mountain in Newfoundland lost a return terminal from the same generation lift to a lightning caused fire in the early summer, and Tremblant lost the drive terminal to a fire in the late fall. The unburnt drive terminal was down but yet to be shipped so it was sent to Tremblant instead of GJ, so the lift could be quickly rebuilt. The two burnt terminals from Marble and Tremblant where shipped to GJ to be remanufactured (used at Powderhorn). The lift at Marble got new LPA terminals, chairs and grips. Not sure if the terminal from Marble was remotored when installed at tremblant, but it was probably only designed for 1000fpm.

      I stand corrected by a friend, they only took components from the Marble terminal not the entire terminal.
