    If they don't want it in Carinthia, Canyon fits the profile almost to the foot ~5500 length/1100 vert. Then move that lift to Sunbrook...

    If it was longer you could do some interesting things in Sundance with it.

    Or maybe they would simply do a 1 for 1 swap on Sunbrook and be done with it.

    Who knows.

    I didn't even think of Sundance. I don't think that lodge is long for this world. If I remember correctly they had long term plans of bulldozing that area and moving maintenance over there.

    That would be a bummer. Old school feel to it and the parking / walk is easy.

    I'm not sure if moving the six pack to Snow makes a ton of sense, since it would be a one off as the lone Doppelmayr among Poma/Leitner-Poma detachables. It would fit in better over at Stratton since they just built a Doppelmayr quad of the same generation last year. I would be surprised to see Snow move away from LPOA with all the existing lifts.

    Buying the two Skytracs though, I think would be a good move. At least one of them would be good on North Face, and there's plenty of options across the mountain to replace a second aging Yan. Since Snow hasn't built any fixed grips in decades, it would be a good opportunity to build the relationship with Skytrac as they look to upgrade more lifts in coming years, especially since Skytrac is part of the LPOA family.

    Barnstormer is also a perfect fit vertical and lengthwise for rams head and I believe the rfid gate was built for six.

    Of course everything else at k is poma.

    The only remote fit for one of the Skytracs would be Heavy Metal, even then they would need a new haul rope minimal, possibly additional towers and more HP. Both lifts at the Hermitage are short, low vert and small motors. Low capacity transfer lifts. I don't see MS going away from straight LP lifts either.

    For the right price, aka bankruptcy auction levels, I could see some combination of Heavy Metal, Discovery Shuttle, Beartrap, and/or Seasons. It would help a lot that Skytrac is now owned by Poma. I could also see it being either they get Barnstormer OR the two sky tracs. Hell, the two Poma Alpha triples are also in good shape. Basically, this could be a weird moment in time where Mount Snow could upgrade 50% of their lift infrastructure for 50% of the cost.

    Sunday River would happily take Barnstormer for a Barker replacement. Pretty good fit and Boyne has been all Dopp.

    True, essentially all of Mount Snow's high speed lifts are L-P (short of the steel of the lift and terminal towers the Grand Summit has over the years been essentially fully rebuilt by L-P) however, Peak as a company does have Dopp lifts, and I'm guessing that Dopp would gladly service a transplanted Barnstormer *if* it ever moves to Mount Snow... Would likely be a more financially beneficial situation for Dopp than what they're getting from Barnstormer now. And keeping in business with Peak *could* have benefits down the road for Dopp....

    Had anyone asked Perdue Pharma yet what they think? Since they make the decisions now? How many OxyContin pills equals a chair lift?
