At Haystack?

Is the advantage faster unloading with the poshness of a gondola?

Anyone seen the one at Mont Orford?

Yeeh, big news there eh? I've ridden the one at Orford, it's really nice. If it's a nice day ya ride the chairs, if it's cold maybe ride the gondola. There were more people riding the chairs the day I was there. Chairs were at maximum about a 30 seocnd wait, gondola was pretty much walk right on. Did both a couple times just for the hell of it.

Wow, Haystack with a gate to keep me out and a chondola like at Orford. The Orford lift 'L'Hybride' is pretty nifty and it is intersting that Haystack is using the concept. I won't miss the flat spot that Haystack has at mid mountain.
