Eureka! – It’s Backwards

Discovered this past week –

Vail’s new (six at once) detachable Ski Lift runs backwards from what the original Chair 4 was at this time, last year.

Skiers of Vail’s original Chair 4 from Mid-Vail to the top of Vail Mountain remember exiting the lift at the top…while the Chairs turned to the left to make their return trip back down to Mid-Vail.

The new lift is the reverse of what once was…as anyone who has watched the real-time video from Mid-Vail’s webcam knows.  (Click Here)

Caution – there is a lot more going on with this Eagle County, Colorado Radio Scanner – than just VR’s chatter.  No telling just what you might hear from time to time.
