    That is by far the largest stop button I have ever seen.

    Is this the poma lift you pass by when skiing down Cow Flats from Swift Current towards Shedhorn? I’ve always wondered what that lift does.

    Why didn’t Yellowstone do one lift with an angle station instead of two separate lifts? Wouldn’t it be easier for operating costs? Considering that they have gone under before, I would think one lift would be easier to operate and staff than of two.

      Utah pow, the reason for the 2 separate lifts is that with only one drive , the driving bullwheel would be at one end or the other. the power feed for the current
      2 motor/2 separate lifts probably comes from the houses electrical service feed directly to the East. the power feed from EITHER end of a single driven platter lift would require a longer and more complicated underground run from a potential power source. So it is a matter of construction cost economics ,and Those larger change of direction bullwheels ( like Breckinridge’s Horseshoe Bowl T Bar) on T bar and Poma lifts are probably costlier ( stronger/bigger) than 2 smaller separate bullwheels.
