Castlerock – Sugarbush, VT

This lift is the second iteration of the iconic Castlerock Double.
The bottom station looks like a Standard Alpha model but uses a Yan gearbox.
Chair spacing and tower spacing are very big.
View up at tower 6.

Breakover towers.
Fixed return bullwheel at the top.

    Interesting about the gearbox… never heard that before. Where did it come from? And why was it used?

    I believe that it came from Killington, however I do not know why it was used.

      Must have been from the old Needles Eye Double.
