The closest thing we've got to breakovers @ stratton:

In spite of popular belief (Flatton) (and how many breakovers Stratton has, this is it, and half of these aren't really breakovers) stratton has some steep stuff that goes on for a while (Kidderbrook, if you are willing ride up 2 lifts for one lap and aren't cold is a great mile-long run Especially with bumps!)

Bretton woods is kind of the same. Their main lift (Bethlehem) has about a 1 foot rise over 5 feet length if you average out the whole line, same for the other lift on that peak Rosebrook, however there are some nice diamond runs, especially off the top of Rosebrook

Surprised this hasn't come up. Mammoth's Panorama Gondola has a really impressive breakover.

Why would they replace it again? Unless it is the same as Barker and cannot run safely/effeciently/effectively/ whaterver at full 1000 F/M or so?

Upper ropeway is a rescue system to be used if the chairlift cannot be operated.
