    The World Book entry says the speed is 5.61 m/s or 1104 fpm. Is that true or is just a typo? I didn’t think lifts with DS series grips could go over 1000.

      Yes, indeed TREX is capable of 1100 fpm. I remember back in the day they would run it at full speed quite often. However, now I think they only run it at 1000 fpm to facilitate loading and minimize wear and tear.

        I noticed this lift going really fast when I rode it a while back.

    When ever I go to Copper, there is always long lines on this lift. I think that this lift should be a 6 passenger lift

      Do you only ski Copper on holiday weekends?

        I-lift is always busy, no matter the day. This is the main reason it was upgraded from two old doubles. I agree, a sixpack would be nice here, but we’ll see. We’re currently busy with two other slightly larger upgrades 😎

          Be a good fit to relocate this lift elsewhere (L,R,A or S) and replace with a 90 deg load six, maybe do the new Uni skin when relocated.

          They could add additional chairs to bring the lift up to 2,800 pph.

          We’d have to drop the speed then, which would negate any additional capacity.
