    Did any other maker modify this lift? The towers and sheaves are the only components that look Riblet to me.

      The chairs are riblet, but they got new backrests and new hanger arms. The hangers look to be similar to those used on 80s and 90s model riblets, however they aren’t attached to the center of the bail. Probably done by the resort or a contractor, I doubt it was another manufacturer’s work

        I think the chairs might actually be Superior Tramway because their designs were very similar to those of Riblet. I wonder if Bottineau Winter Park got them from the removed triple at Frost Fire, which had almost the exact same model of chair.
