    It was running fine on Sunday the 29th. Actually ran pretty fast for a fixed grip.

    Rode it several times today with no problems but everytime it stops you wonder if it will start again. Attitash was spectacular today, big soft bumps everywhere. Many low level skiers struggling severely but one of my best days over the last couple of years.
    The true happiness of a man can be found in the mastery of his passions.

    Vail to the rescue? I’d expect a cheap replacement in the form of another fixed-grip or one with a carpet.

    That is not going to happen at 6200 feet long.

    Agreed

    I wonder how many fixed grip chairs over about maybe 4k length have been installed anywhere in North America in the past 20 years or so. Unless it's specifically for expert level terrain and limiting capacity like a Castle Rock, I just don't recall such a new FG install. People just don't want to spend 10+ minutes on a chair.

    I guess the "new" Magic quad would qualify

    How long was the "re-install" of Southridge at Kmart?

    According to this

    https://www.newenglandskihistory.com...ift.php?id=498

    The old chair was 4381'. They don't have a length listed for the new one, only the vertical. I would think because the new one goes straight instead of turning it would be considerably shorter.

    The longest brand new fixed grip I am aware of installed in New England recently is Spruce at SR, about 4366' in length. And that serves mostly intermediate and up terrain.

    Good call. It does have a carpet load though, so that helps shorten the ride time by about 20%.

    Even a carpet load lift of 6200 feet is still going to be a long ass ride time.

    Will the NFS/WMNF allow them to install a HSQ with a higher capacity?
