    Some old lift footage in this video.

    2:34 old Poma double chair that was replaced by Flying Mile

    2:38 Tremblant Express

    2:50 Duncan Express in original white paint scheme

    3:02 Summit Quad (TGV predecessor) and Tremblant Express, so this was actually taken in 1993 or before

    4:25 Poma fixed quad at now abandoned Grey Rocks ski area. Not sure if/where it was relocated.

      The Poma Quad at Grey Rocks definitely went somewhere. I’m not sure where it went though…

      (Some footage of the Poma quad at 3:39)

        Everything was sold at auction immediately and then the hotel burned down in 2014. Thought it went to Bromont, but their relocated Poma quad actually came from a different closed ski area.

          Parts of the Riblet chairs can still be seen on the mountain though (4:18 in the video). The poma quad at Bromont came from Montjoye, which has re-opened with one t-bar and is now called Mont Hatley.

    I think you mixed up the length for TGV and Expo. They should be switched around.

      That’s the lift evac training facility. It was built with parts leftover from the Tremblant Express when it was moved to Soleil. There is a Gangloff gondola cabin, quad chair from the Tremblant Express, and a triple chair from the old Flying Mile which now operates as Porte du Soleil.

        It kinda reminds me of Breck’s lift evac training area on Peak 9 next to the Beaver Run SuperChair just above where it crosses under Peak 8 SuperConnect. That one being made from a few towers of the old Lift D, and has a single cable with some Riblet chairs and an old Competition quad chair from Beaver Run after it had a capacity downgrade around the time its chain contours were replaced with tire ones.

    When do you think the timber expansion will take place, and what lift will go there?

      Timber is supposed to debut with a detachable quad in time for the 2022/23 season. I do hope that timeline stays as it is and is not pushed back, as Tremblant is really hurting this winter with the local restrictions and zero international visitors. Revenue is down over 50%.
