    This is interesting. I would think closing for a year losing skiers to Sugarloaf would be worse for them. Offer reduced operating schedule running the tbar. I'm only annoyed because I was planning on a long weekend there this year!

    Wouldn't surprise me to see Skytrac get the project. They can outprice Dopp or Poma and want their fixed grip business.

    The Skytrac chair at Berkie could use some extra padding. If it is snowing/your jacket is wet you can get frozen to the back metal piece when going to get off the chair as well.

    The Skytrac's at The Hermitage are super comfy, granted they had plush, custom embroidered with the club's logo, chair pads made, but they're comfy and smooth riding lifts for sure!

    Apparently, saddleback pulled the sale advertisement for the double lift off the website. Something must of happened and I assume they are keeping the double and going to run for another year or the place down for the year.

    Would it not be taken down if it had been sold?

    Typically they keep it up there with a sold sign on it for a little bit. Who knows, maybe it did sell that fast and Saddleback asked them not to do that.

    Eh. I don't mind it so much. The old number 1 black chair, now that was an uncomfortable(dangerous as well) chair lift.

    The Black Diamond Express was the greatest lift in New England History. As a kid if you could ride that thing you were a great skier lol. I think it was in the 640 FPM speed range or something stupid like that.
