    The original Argentine was a 1970 Riblet double and then it was replaced with this Yan double in 1977. Any idea why?

    I’ve always wondered the same thing. Either it was engineered wrong and derailed on a regular basis or it had a design defect where the counterweight was bending the bottom terminal like on KT-22 at Squaw. Without any photos of the original lift, it’s hard to judge so hopefully an old timer has some knowledge.
