I just spent of a few days skiing at Mammoth(early-mid-spring conditions in Dec.!) and was wondering if some other BBF members have noticed a phenomenon about riding on so-called "high-speed" chair lifts. What I noticed is frequent slow-downs and out-right stops in comparison with "regular" chairlifts. I can only reason that it could be from a skier's lack of experience with riding this new technology, having to deal with going from high-speed to regular lifts and vice-versa, or just plain not paying attention to WTF you're doing. I think that I get more PO'ed when I'm on a lift and it slows down(or stops) then having to wait in lift lines. I'd love to hear from others about their experiences. I don't think I'm the only one out there thinking the same...
