Here's one that's a bit of a mouthfull: Kancamangus Quad at Loon Mountain. There's also the Oh No Double at Haystack that has an honorable mention.
Chairlift n. A transportation system found at most ski areas in which a series of chairs suspended from a cable rapidly conveys anywhere from one to eight skiers from the front of one line to the back of another.

I like Iron Horse @ MJ, as well as all the railroad themed trail names.

A friend at WP once told me that they nicknamed one of theirs the "Cripple Triple". It was used for disabled skiers.


And which lift would that be? Since we mainly use Gemini and Dicovery, and Prospector, and that triple chair next to discovery. (drawing a blank on the name of the lift)

...also called Gemini.

Bill, you forgot Rendezvous (old chair 9).

My favourites: Hemispheres (chair 8 at Baker), the Gad lifts at Snowbird (Who came up with those? Egad!), and Solar Coaster at Blackcomb.

Least favourite would be Copper's old name for chair 6- Extreme Access. That lasted for a couple years before the name was changed to Mountain Chief. 'Extreme' is the most overused word in our industry.
