    The original Yan HSQ here had a vault drive, just out of the picture of the top terminal. The garage doors to enter the vault are still there. Current lift is overhead drive. First two and last two towers were replaced by CTEC, and the rest are Yan. There is no tower number 4 (it looks like numbers 3 and 5 were moved closer together during the retrofit, as they have CTEC-style footings). There is also no bottom operator shack, although the one for Silver Lake isn’t far away.

      If you don’t mind watching the movie Ski Patrol, there is one scene in the movie that features it.

    Why are the first few towers not yan towers if the others are? Also why are these Yan towers?

    Yes, the original Yan did have footrests (as does every lift at DV). The backrests were the slatted kind instead of the padded ones (same on Prospector over at PCMR)

    The first tower needed to be added in as the depression sheaves were integrated into the original Yan terminal. Assuming tower 2 needed to be replaced due to excavation or height or something in the replacement. The breakovers are also new for the same reason (old ones were integrated).

    Found a video and the old Carpenter Chair look likes the teardrop version of June’s J6 Quad
