Felix noted this link ( www.ropeways.net ) in his comments on Scott's story about What's New at Wintergreen( http://www.dcski.com/articles/view_article.php?article_id=725&mode=headlines).
The ropeways link is a neat website with fascinating news about lift installations around the world. As Felix points out, if you go to the projects section and look up Wintergreen you'll see fotos of their new expert terrain six-pack chairlift. Among the amazing other projects underway is a new 2.25 mile long gondola with 30 passenger cabins spanning an intermountain valley in the Kitzbuhel ski area. Good stuff...requiring tight sphincter muscles for a ride on this bad boy.
