    Can you add Telluride, CO? You wouldn’t necessarily need pictures, and I know basically their whole lift system going back to the 70s (including manufacturers).

    In the Vail pictures in Colorado, Gopher Hill is labeled as chair #13 but it is chair #12.

    Even after I clear cache, I can only view it once before it shows the error again

      Strange. If you feel comfortable sharing who your internet service provider is, that might help me narrow it down. Do you get the same error message when you click “View in Fullscreen?”

    It seems just like yesterday I was just getting on chair 2 back in the winter of 1998-1999 I did not know that they are removing the lifts or even that it was abandoned! I hope the lifts go to a different resort I live in Utah know and ski solitude resort for 17 years.

    this is kinda random but I don’t know where else to ask-are there any operating center pole quads outside of the Midwest? I know Michigan has a few, and there are a couple in MN and WI as well, but I can’t think of any at west coast/rockies or east coast resorts.

      If you consider Clear Fork, OH to be operating, then the center pole quad on their “advanced” hill would count. They aren’t open for skiing anymore, but the area is currently used for summer operations.

        There are still a few Borvigs in the Mid-Atlantic / Northeast at smaller ski areas that are the center-pole quad design. Many have been replaced over the past decade but a few are still around. Tussey Mountain, PA still has one.
        Ribets were extremely rare in the Mid-Atlantic / Northeast so many of the older lifts were Hall or Borvig.

    So apparently there are four states without any lifts: Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, and Louisiana.

    Hawaii is quite surprising given all the volcanoes and tourism focus. Arkansas has some topography and tourism too … for instance, the Mount Magazine Lodge sits on the state’s high point 1000 vertical feet above the surrounding valley.

    Delaware and Louisiana make more sense. Flat, coastal states with no skiing.

    There is a relatively new-looking pulse gondola in a forest park in Puerto Rico … though from the ltitle I can find online, it appears to be standing/not-operating.

      Doppelmayr CTEC built the Puerto Rico gondola in 2012 and it was open only for five years. Closed ever since Hurricane Maria. If it ever reopens, I will certainly go.

        There was also another CTEC double at a theme park in Puerto Rico. The chair (as far as I know) closed in the early 1990s, even though the the theme park re-opened a few years later. There’s a good video of it here:
