    Where is Lagoon’s 3-CLF Sky ride? It was built bu Roebling. The strange thing I can’t find the tensoning. Every time I ride it. I know for a fact that a lift has to have some sort of tensioning. Unless the lift is a v shape where the chair weight tensions it. The sky ride is like Park city’s Flat Iron except with no mid stations. The restraining bars also lock too.

    I looked on Google Earth and saw something near Mountain Green in Brushy Canyon that looks like a small ski area. Does anyone know about this place?

        Something that can seem possible is it could be the former wildcat double

          It’s a good possibility that this lift is the old wildcat double. Here’s a picture of the lift the summer it was removed. If you look at the Mountain Green ski area on Google Earth (41°09’54.0″N 111°43’42.3″W) the bottom terminal and towers look the same.

      I am presuming that is a LCC gondola. I like the idea of it, as the traffic in the area is a mess. However, I think your bottom terminal is unfeasible as it would require crossing numerous private houses. There is an existing LCC parking lot at the intersection of UT-210/UT-209 that could more affordably be expanded, so I think the lift would start there. I also think you are overestimating the number of turns the lift would have. Every turn is an added expense, so I presume those would be kept to an absolute minimum with one probably each at Snowbird and Alta coupled with a load/unload station.
