Completely agree.I think a fixed-grip quad is really the most logical and appropriate choice for HG. You don't need a high speed lift up there. Lowering the profile to reduce wind issues in a few spots is a big upgrade. A brand new lift in and of itself is a rather significant upgrade as well as in theory it would be more reliable just by virtue of being a brand new lift.
Random fixed grip lift question. Can they be sped up? Is there some sort of known top end speed that if exceeded makes it too hard to load and unload? I'd love to see Heaven's Gate and Summit run a bit faster. There are times when I'm on the lift and it cold and feels like a long ride.
One more question...does anyone know the speed of HG vs. Summit vs. Inverness. Inverness feels like it's crawling.
