    This lift has the most vertical rise of any lift on the mountain at 2,160 feet.

    One way you can tell this is an earlier variant of the UNI G compared to the other high speed quads at Beaver Creek with UNI G terminals is that at the top, the chairs make the turnaround in one continuous turn, whereas everything from the Lower/Upper Beaver Creek Mountain Expresses onwards has the chairs make two sharp 90 degree turns with a short straight segment (even the ones that don’t have 90 degree loading or unloading).

    I think there’s more to it than that though, given that OBX at Park City has one of each…

    I know this is UNI-G and is a much later variant of Doppelmayr, but I am suprised that on this and Upper and Lower Beaver Creek Mountain Lifts they didn’t copy the original terminal exterior.
