      No. Doppelmayr USA has greatly simplified its offerings in recent years. For detachables, choices are UNI-G or D-Line. There are Standard, Viper and tunnel versions of the Uni-G and two different D-Line enclosure shapes.

        When is D-Line coming to North America? Also, do you think that LPA will ever design a new fixed grip terminal? The Alpha seems to be getting stale.

          D-Line is for sale if someone wants to buy at a premium. It will not replace the current models, at least in the short term.

          I think we are seeing the replacement for the Alpha is the Skytrac Monarch. If you look at Europe, Leitner built only detachables and surface lifts last year. That may be the path Leitner-Poma takes while leaving the fixed-grip business to its subsidiary in Salt Lake. The only Alpha this year appears to be going to Whitewater.

    Why did they replace the old Poma lift? It was in service for 9 years. Was it relocated?

    This reuses tower tubes from the Poma HSQ. Now I believe there are only 3 Poma lifts in Utah (Red Pine gondola here, Supreme at Alta, and Eagle Point)

      This results in an interesting irony where the Tombstone Express is a Doppelmayr high speed six pack with the tower tubes of a Poma chairlift, while the Sunshine Express is a Poma high speed quad with the reused tower tubes of a Doppelmayr chairlift.
