    Anyone know anything about the three day “scheduled” shutdown of this lift that started today? Gearbox replacement?

    I’m going to place my bet now: the Swift Current detachable quad at Big Sky or parts from it whether that be basically a relocation albeit much shorter, or just chairs, towers, line gear, and new Uni-G terminals, will replace this lift in 2021.

        There aren’t any real hints that a lift other than Kanc or possibly Barker are going in in the east next year or in 2021. We know something is going on with Barker; it’s been surveyed twice in the last few months, but I highly doubt they would replace a 30 year old detachable quad with a 20 year old detachable quad. There’s no logic behind that. Kanc wasn’t a mystery since it appeared through WMNF. Nobody from Sugarloaf has heard something about a new lift there (and if anything was going on there, someone would know).
        I don’t think it’s going east, and the only other detachables that we know are on Boyne’s list (other than numerous at Big Sky) are at Snoqualmie, specifically a replacement for this lift or a new International detach quad at Alpental. My bet is that this lift gets replaced first.

      I know a HSQ is in their master plan but I’m not convinced it’s really necessary for such a short lift. Ride time is already under 5 minutes. Maybe just for the capacity upgrade?

      I believe Snoqualmie’s master plan calls for an infill lift & new runs between Summit Central and Summit West; could the old Swifty go there?

      Then there’s also a replacement for Wildside, which also helps with the West-Central link, and which is older and lower-capacity than Triple 60.
