Facelift was installed in 2002 replacing both the Valley Triple and MidStation Shuttle Lifts.  The Valley Triple ran the full length and the MidStation Shuttle only ran up to the bottom of Mountain Run, providing direct access to the lodge and those lifts.  Facelift doesn't have a mid station because it was too expensive on a detachable so that's why there's no direct access to that lodge anymore.  While direct access to that lodge was lost, direct access to LWF was gained with the gondola.  Good move IMO.
Interesting to read the recent history.  I only skied Whiteface a few times in 1968-70 as an intermediate.  The only part that I can remember clearly is the bridge.  The changes to the lifts made the place feel very different when I skied WF again in 2014.

Re: Whiteface Conditions

Was there ever a single chair to the summit at WF?? For some reason I remember one being there back in the  80's while skiing there in college. Maybe it's all a dream..... can anyone confirm or deny?

I understand that there was a double that went to the warming hut (now hose storage for snowmaking) with a poma that went from the warming hut to where Summit lets off now.

You look a lot younger than that in your avatar.

No single.  SBR must have had the same dream (read the comments):  Whiteface Mountain, circa 1986

That is HILARIOUS!!! I swear I remember that. Was it maybe a double with the pole in the middle of the chair or something like that??

Ok, I'm easily confused so I must be mistaken.

I read that as "one lift" (as opposed to a double-double like LWF/Mt. Run).  I guess what you meant is a single chair a la MRG.
