Glenmore Gondola? The arm chair ski area managers have not heard of global warming!!!!! the worlds heating up the snow is in retreat up the mountain.
True, but it doesn't necessarily follow that there will be no snow in Scotland, the effects of global warming are not necessarily consistent.
Cairngorm removed the Aonach because there has not been sufficient snow to run it in almost 10 years. How can you keep a ski a lift in service for a few days a decade or less!!!! Those campaigning against CML should realize they endanger the future of skiing on the hill if money is squandered on dangerously obsolete chairlifts. The Ciste Chair is even lower than the Aonach!!!!!
The professional ski managers at Glenshee are building a new chair at the same altitude as the Aonach.
How do you justify the statement that the chairs are dangerously obsolete. Obsolete does not equal Dangerous, neither does it preclude good maintenance, parts can be made to order if necessary by a good engineering firm. There are other older chairs running in the world perfectly safely (eg Glencoe/Cliffhanger, Glenshee/Cairnwell, Mad River Glen in the US), while accidents can happen on modern installations.

Let the pros get on with the job without the distraction of a campaign against them by a few bitter and twisted has beens and never will bes. Stay Happy.
I would dispute your use of 'full ski area', however, I salute the hard work of the current management who I suspect are doing the best they can with the what they have. Unfortunately they have to cope with a legacy of mistakes which were made by their predecessors.
