    Powdr Going for the Bulk Deal - 2 New Lifts at Copper

    https://theknow.denverpost.com/2018/...s-2018/178352/

    Gotta say, the Flyer is the first time I've ever been on an express quad with more than 200 chairs. The length coupled with all the stops due to the beginner use of the lift made it a very long ride when the wind was blowing.



    As for the Eagle becoming a Chondola, gotta wonder if they're going to put in some lights a la Sunday River to compete with Keystone's night skiing.

    One might think that POWDR's owner just came into an inheritance.
    Live, Ski, or Die!

    Guess they decided to finally spend some of the Park City money.

    Happy I got to ride these lifts this year before they are gone especially the Flyer. I really liked the Flyer for its long length, unique vault drive, and just raw engineering (much more of the mechanics are visible compared to modern detachables). Bubble six seems like an appropriate replacement. As for the Eagle I wish they would make that just a bubble six as well. I don't like Chondolas at all, I get they want foot access to Solitude Station, but that lodge is rather basic.

    I rode a Chondola in Zermatt. Everyone was waiting for the gondola, meanwhile the chairs were ski on. Really can't complain about that.

    Funny, it was the opposite when I was there. Nice weather though.

    Really dude? Dink comment. You think they pulled all this together in the past 2 weeks since Ian died?
