    The bottom operator shelter reminds me of the one at Quarterway on old chair 4 at Crystal. Kept the wind off but that was about it. I don’t think it even had a heater.

      I remember there being a full shack on the outside next to the loading ramp, but a similar enclosure to this in between the haul rope lines to keep the weather off the Operator on that side. At least until they shortened 4 and removed Quarterway.
