    The towers on this lift and chair 3 came from the Mountaintop Express lift as that lift was being replaced with a high speed six pack. Although some may have come from the Vista Bahn Express lift.

    Also, is it me, or do the modified lifting frames almost look like they’re imitating Leitner-Poma’s current lifting frame design?

    I think they took the top crossarm and made it a bit higher

      It also looks like the lifting frame modifications were done for the purpose of adding the night skiing lights.

    The crossarms are from Vail and Beaver Creek, Doppelmayr re made the crossarms narrower for the fixed grips as detachables are 15.75ft line gage but that style fixed grip only has a 13.5ft line gage, I assume that moving of the upper crossmember is to avoid having to modify as many parts and help add lights.
