For bottom drive six packs, for now I can think of the Panoramic Express lift at Winter Park.

For top drive six packs, I think of Quicksilver Super6, the Independence SuperChair, the Super Bee, the Christie Peak Express, the Ruby Express, and the Village Express at Snowmass.

The three tower lift should be Copper Mountain's Pitchfork lift.

For the two high speed quads with chairs and cabins, these are the answers:

1. The Chondola at Telluride
2. The Zephyr Express lift at Winter Park (although the cabins are only used during after-hours)

Three bottom drive high speed quads in Colorado I can think of:

Outback Express at Keystone
Imperial Express SuperChair at Breckenridge
Coney Glade at Snowmass

Your missing 1....

The three tower lift should be Copper Mountain's Pitchfork lift. Could be. Also could be handful of others

For the two high speed quads with chairs and cabins, these are the answers:

1. The Chondola at Telluride
2. The Zephyr Express lift at Winter Park (although the cabins are only used during after-hours) This is correct however it still operates both.

Three bottom drive high speed quads in Colorado I can think of:

Outback Express at Keystone
Imperial Express SuperChair at Breckenridge
Coney Glade at Snowmass


Good.

2. Village Express snowmass
5. What Donald said and also purgatory village express at dmr
6. Three more: loge peak at highlands and sunshine and gold hill at telluride
7. R and s at copper and 2 at Loveland but that might be later
9. Not at all sure about this but maybe the Breckinridge and snowmass gondolas
11. Kinda guessing but is there's speed matching zone, accel/decel zones, and cadence zone

No idea on 1 and 10

Coney Glade is the only one on Snowmass I can think of with 14 towers, so if not that, I'm stumped.
