    Spookman, great pics.  That is the 2nd Killington double chair and the snowdon triple.

    Cool old photo.  I skied that mountain a lot that year.  That is the longer of the two main double chairs.  It has a mid-station which is important for lapping the bottom half of the mtn for the best black diamond runs.

    Are you referring to the old Poma double on Snowdon with the classic Poma chairs? I wished that thing was running back when I was at Killington.

    Yes, I saw it with my own eyes only a couple of times in 4th and 5th grade.

    Not sure who made it but yes, it was there before the Quad went in until 1992 or so. The towers were reused.

    It was my understanding that the towers from the Snowshed double which was replaced by the HS quad were used for the Snowdon quad. I could be wrong.

    Damm now I am second guessing my memory. Was the double a Poma or Hall on Snowdon? I could have sworn it was a Poma too.

    It for sure was a Poma with the classic style chairs. I skied underneath it. I was hoping it would be run as I've never ridden in that style chair.

    that's why my memory says they kept the towers with new arms, why replace Poma tower with other Poma towers from Snowshed...

    According to chairlifts.org the towers were from the Snowshed double.

    That's what I thought but my memory could be wrong.  Both were Poma brand chairs and it would make sense since they follow the same alignment.  Anyone from K-ops here that can shed light.

    It also says it was converted in 1987 but the lift wasn't converted until fall of 1992. Snowshed Quad went in in 1987 so it doesn't make sense that the towers from double #3 sat somewhere for 5 years to just replace identical towers of the existing Snowdon double. Double #3 was also 1000 feet shorter than the Snowdon Quad is.


    I am 99% sure the same towers were just retrofitted with new arms. The only towers moved that off season that I remember were the Canyon Quads.

    Seems like chairlift.org has been down for a few weeks. Is this only temporary?

    Wow!

    Going back a bit-- your dog is very photogenic


    I take it at Maple Valley you have to suck it up and drive on if it's a minor medical problem. That's hardcore!
