    South Branch Quad...

    The Berry's grew weary of maintaining Rangley - a 53 year old lift. I have not heard of any catastrophic issues with the lift, other than it may not make sense depending on work needing to be performed. Remember, a lot of work goes into keeping lifts running. Bullwheel bearings, gearboxes, footing issues, comm line replacements, etc are all major. Then you have all your yearly line work, etc. The lift does have only 15 year old terminals though.



    They would not be able to replace even the Cupsuptic T-Bar if they haven't started yet, plain and simple. If they operate on a limited basis this season it will need to be on existing lifts.

    Hope to see some progress soon for Rangley's sake.

    Maybe I am missing something, but I only see pictures and no video.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I thought maybe I just was doing something wrong yesterday when I went to look. (And there's still a chance that's the case as I'm not much of an Instagram user)

    I'm interested in hearing what happened. I hope that they can get it going again.

    Article with a 5 year plan . Closing is Nov. 4 so I don't think much will happen for this season.

    It would be nice to see something actually happen this winter.

    If they are not closing until 11/4 and Cup T-Bar needs to be replaced, doesn't sound promising unless we have a warm fall and late start to winter. They did say they want to promote uphill skinning so maybe they can set up a couple big weekends of that in the least.
