    This has got to be one of the last lifts with the late years Yan sheaves on it. Almost every other lift I’ve seen has had Doppelmayr or CTEC line equipment retrofits. Pretty cool to still see the hubcaps in service.

      Galena lift at Mt. Rose also still uses the “hubcap” sheaves. And, Tower 17 on Chair 10 at Kirkwood also sports them. Otherwise, from what I have seen, I agree that most have been replaced.

      Except the lift has had a good number of its sheaves replaced by Doppelmayr.

        Chair 10 at KIrkwood has for sure. I believe Galena still has them.
