Sunday River has similar cabins and Dana Bullin told me they ran $15,000 a piece in 2008 when they bought them.

They have heaters and everything in them which I'm sure factors in to the cost. The sunday river ones were heated also right?

Sunday River cabins have no heat, but are glass below the seat level which Killingtons old ones are not. I expect that might make SR's cabin a tad more pricey.

Killingtons gondolas heat hasn't worked on skyeship or k1 since 2005, not sure if they stopped working or they just didn't care anymore but I wouldn't expect the heat to work.

tbh I thought it wasnt necessary anyway. as long as you are out of the wind you warm up on the lift anyway unless it's in the single digits

I was in them one day when the heat still worked and they REEKED of kerosene! I think they ran on some type of kerosene heater with the heat blown into the cabin by Ni-Cad battery powered fan as they used to plug them in overnight.
