Highest percentage of detachables?

Oh look, it's silly season. :-)
Wachusett has 4 chairlifts, of which 3 are detachables. I was wondering if any other area had a higher percentage, then I remembered Burke has 3, of which 2 are detachables, and the other one they don't run much. (And when they still had the old Poma, that meant 3 of 5 lifts were detachables, counting surface lifts.)

Anywhere else have a similar or higher percentage?

    There are only two chairlifts at Burke now and they are both detachables.

  • BW has six chairs, 4 detachable - 2 FG. (Mt. Whittier was the only area I knew of that had a gondola, but no chairlifts.)
  • Go West young man for the big players in high speed dominance. Lead by Beaver Creek, where 14 of their 16 lifts that serve 1800 acres are detachable vs. fixed grip.
  • Revelstoke has two detachable HSQs and one detachable gondola for 100% detach ratio:-)
    Oops, I'm wrong. They also have a small mid-mtn magic carpet for detach ratio of 75%!
