I've hardly ever seen a terribly long line on that chair, and the majority of my visits are on weekends during the main part of the season. I've also rarely ridden it three-abreast. Even when there IS a line, it generally loads in ones and twos, unless there are three people who are actually skiing together.
I wouldn't be surprised if the NRT is next to be replaced after the Snowdon Quad and the SRT. It's a crucial lift, not one of the newest ones, and it had some outages this year.
