    I predict that this thread will last longer than Powdr's reign at Killington. Damn, I'm suprised this is still going.

    What is more surprising is that there is all this talk of K in a thread that was started to discuss Pico. But its not that much of a stretch.... I've only skied 3 days at K so this thread has taught me a great deal about K/Pico.

    Probably not that likely (sale of lifts to the midwest) - the lifts are way too big (they'dlikely be split into two or three) and old (cost of transport would drop the overall value of an install). If anything, it wouldn't be surprising to see some of the older lifts at Pico replaced, for instance, with an outgoing KMart triple or quad.

    I was thinking they would be shortened if necessary with a new and likely needed haul rope. The best parts would be used and the rest would be stored for spares. Most of them don't exactly climb monsterous verticals at K either. I think the lifts that need replacing typically climb about 600 to 1200 vert? Midwest mountains run 600 to 1200 vert total, so instead of serving a terrain pod they would be scaling the whole mountain there.

    Interesting that this has come up again.

    However it is also interesting, that 9 years later (hard to believe it has been that long) it sure seems as if the Pico operating schedule has worked out very well. (Setting aside this miserable winter of course).
