    Are the lone towers with lights in the background of pic 1 yan or another company?

      They might be leftovers from Links or the High Camp triple chairlift, which were removed in 2012 when the Big Blue Express was built.

    They are just pipe- most likely fabricated and installed by Squaw Staff.

    If you look at this lift the Poma influence is super obvious. The return looks super similar to the modified floating bullwheels on 1960s Poma chairs, look at the bullwheel and bullwheel assembly. Also if you look at the drive it is nearly identical to that of early 1960s Poma ones.
