      Normal for Doppelmayr triples. The middle seat foot rest is all on one side. Borvig did this too. Yan, CTEC and Poma always split it.

    Wachusett recently undertook a massive repainting project which involved repainting this lift and its towers to a tan-ish color to match the Wachusett theme better than the forest green.

      I think they also updated something in the drive terminal on the monadnock express, not 100% sure though.

        They replace the motor for some odd reason. No clue as to why it would need replacement but the did it anyway.

        I have to admit I love the new color scheme on the lifts. All of the towers on Monadnock, Polar, and Minuteman now match and are no longer that offset navy blue
