    What other lifts in North America were built with this terminal? I know Rainier Express at Crystal has this design too.

      There’s only one more on this side of the Atlantic…White Peaks Express at Waterville Valley, NH.

        White Peaks bears the distinction of being the only one of these three to be a top-drive. Angel Express and Rainier Express are both bottom-drive lifts.

    It’s surprising that this is the oldest lift at Sunshine! All the tech here is so new.

    Angel Express is in great shape. In no way does it feel like an old life
