Skyline Chair Cushions

Postby Gstring » Fri Jan 12, 2018 11:37 am

The bottom chair cushions are ripped to varying degrees in the same place on half the Skyline chairs. There are 127 chairs. Chairs 1-37 and 100-127 are ripped. This is the newest lift and it looks like hell - looks like neglect (I'm not saying the lift is neglected - but that's the perception). Curb appeal? Pride? Please fix this.

Yup. They’re fastened in the flipped position

I have had several jackets, through the years, get grease dropped on them from riding various Loaf lifts, (as probably have, many others)...but in defense of the Mtn, (customer service), they have always offered to have the jackets cleaned for me.

Speaking of skyline, don't board chair #73. It's tilted. One side is a good 4-6 inches higher than the other. I have noticed that last Sunday morning. It was quite obvious so it might have been fixed already.

For the grease dripping, k2trav is most likely right. KP and timberline messed my jacket and pants pretty badly.

This is not unique to the loaf (the drips nor the cleaning service).

You are absolutely right, gondi; it is not just "unique to the loaf." Didn't mean to make it sound that way...it has also happened to me or members of my family at Sunday River and Lost Valley, especially when it gets warmer, closer to the spring. Not a big deal, though...usually, the stains come right out, if not we often recycle those jackets and pants to ice fishing and snowmobiling gear and just let them accumulate fish scales and snowmachine rips and tears; it all works out :lol:

Is there more grease on the uphill side than the downhill or vice versa? For the grease to have been a factor, it would seem to be relevant only when the chairs are stationary for long time periods, i.e. summer and fall. Otherwise the rips would be more randomly distributed among the chairs. Whatever the case there would seem to be an easy preventive fix by adding an additional layer of material to the cushion directly below the cable.

Torn chairlift cushions?!?
Is this Vail or Aspen? I hope the trademarked logo wasn't smudged.

I am surprised they have not patched them up with the Sugarloaf logo duct tape.

I think the chairs are too low. The tops of my boots hit the front of the cushions.
