I was there Sunday. It’s definitely not as fast as sugar but it can’t be seeing it’s a fixed grip. They said it’s not running as fast as it should be because the conveyer at the loading isn’t synced up with the chairs so it running a little slower but it seemed fine to me. It will be nice when they are running the other new one too.
They have been running it 1/3-1/2 speed so that's not a good basis of comparison. It has been running 1.6 meters per second. During the week it will be running in the upper 3's. Give the operators time to get used to the new equipment. It's not as easy as just flipping a switch.

Ah, you know... the public wants to flip a switch and turn it into Micky World Skiing.

Very retired patrol member. It's a battle to put down snow here. Soon, though, it will be a growth industry.
