    West Bowl is simply being closed this season due to a lack of staffing.

    Was it once a J-bar? I’ve only seen those crossarms on Hall J-bars.

    Anyone know if this fella will be operating for the ‘21-‘22 season?

      I asked Sun Peaks this question a few weeks ago and here’s what they said: “Information on the status of the West Bowl area is in progress and we’ll have an update for guests later this fall.”

    There’s a part of me that could imagine a triple or fixed grip quad running here.

      They should have kept the old Crystal triple for this location instead of scrapping it…

    The Hall cross arms were made to bolt together like that. They were done like that probably to utilize spring boxes instead of the Hall extendable tubular carriers that were originally on the lift.

    The drive terminal appears to have been converted to hydraulic drive instead of electric.

      Sad to see it go.
      Its neat to see and ride lifts that are adapted, modified and repurposed over the years.
      Im sure the insurance underwriters have a different opinion on that though.
