    Why didn’t they just make the bottom terminal full size, instead of having a moving platform like that?

      Space limitations due to surrounding buildings at the bottom terminal.

        Thanks! I like to pretend I’m a huge lift nerd, and I am to those around me, but I guess I don’t really know that much in the grand scheme of lift knowledge.

    That was an uncalled for reply of mine. Whoops.

      Damaged by ice. Not the first broken windows unfortunately.

          Reminds me when I was at snowbird with my dad and the windshield on his truck got so cold it was cracked. (There was a good 2 feet of snow on it). Sounds like the top dock needs a roof as well.

    The bottom dock has a moving platform due to the adjacent buildings. What I am curious about is how much wider the car spacing is on the top dock. To simplify, I can’t imagine that the north and south haul ropes are parallel. I will be out there this winter and confirm.
