The GMVS Poma (left) to be replaced

The estimated 50 year old GMVS Poma lift is slated for replacement, as Summit Ventures and Green Mountain Valley School have submitted a Vermont Act 250 application for a $1.4 million T-Bar.

According to the application, the new lift would be significantly longer than the Poma, starting parallel to the GMVS T-Bar, following a line between the Inverness Quad and treeline, and terminating near the top of the chairlift.

The new T-Bar would be a Leitner Poma and could operate at 700 feet per minute.

The GMVS Poma was installed in the early 1980s and is used for racing.

T-Bars have become increasingly popular amongst racing programs, as they provide direct access to racing slopes while keeping the athletes on the snow. In recent years T-Bars have been installed at Burke, Cannon Mountain, and Sunday River in conjunction with racing programs.
