Well all be darned. That's quite the upgrade for that resort. Nice to hear. Sad that a classic is goning away.

Were they able to re-use most of the concrete, or has that been happening up until now.

PCMR posted a picture on their Facebook page today that indicates it will be the old King Con replacing Motherlode, instead of a new lift - can't pull it up at work but it says they're moving chairs from King Con over to Motherlode

Just got back from Banff, hitting up some spring turns at Sunshine Village, Doppelmayr was flying concrete for the new Teepee Town lift and most of the new lift is sitting in the parking lot. Fun to watch the bird land next to the gondola you are on. I'll post picks once I unpack.

Interesting terminal looks very similar to SkyTrac's design.

Given that it's up on the hill, and it's still snowing, probably not.

Not yet Donald, but I was up at A Basin enjoying some spring pow on Pali and ran over to check out the progress at Loveland thus far, chair and cable are off, pictures are attached below.

Also on a completely unrelated note, I got my first position in the industry as an operator on Water World's Yan jigback gondola so if anybody has any questions on that particular system, I could try and answer them.
