The ones with the heated seats are even hotter. Not a fan of the blue bubbles as they make me feel nauseous for some reason. Also the bucket seats the 8 has at loon feel constrictive. foot pegs aren't big enough either, seem boarders have the most issue with them.When it’s -10 with -20 windchill in the middle of winter, the bubble is great!
When it’s 45 degree and sunny in the spring, the bubble (the kind that automatically closes) is a freaking sauna
Trying to figure out these days which ski/riding social media site has more curmudgeons complaining about the (needed to generate needed business) changes to the ski industry, AZ or Snow journal...
the powderseeker chair at big sky is the stupidest bubble lift I've been on to date.they are definitely everywhere in Europe and out west. I think every new chair lift at big sky is a bubble.
I think that Slidebrook is the one place where a lower-capacity 4 or 6-person gondola would've made sense. Bubbles still don't cover your feet.I ski at sugarbush. The one place where it would definitely make sense is Slidebrook. After riding GH it’s a cold schlep over to north.

Agree. Last year on a day I rode Mt Snow, the bubble was packed, but no line whatsoever at the Grand Summit (no bubble). So I rode that all day. Brought me to the same spot at the summit and the same ride time. And it was a day in the 20s-30s with light wind.I thought they were really dumb right up until I rode one. They r pretty nice but come on this is skiing. Probably the best thing about them is there’s usually a less luxurious lift near by with zero line, the lift I’m riding.

I'm not calling you anything but an 800 ft vert 3 minute lift doesn't need a bubbleI was at Big Sky last year,... it was -10 and blowing 20-30 MPH. Call me a pussy, but I very much enjoyed the bubble.
