The size of the motor room on this lift suggests it was relocated from a much longer location.

    It is very likely that this lift is the former Chair 2 from Granite Peak Wisconsin, I haven’t seen any other SLI lifts with long motor rooms other than that lift. Photos can be found on chairlift.org

      I don’t think so. This lift started operating before Granite Peak’s SLI was removed.

    Glade at Catamount had a really long motor room (I painted it once). I thought this was possibly Glade, but the chairs on Glade did not have Riblet clips.

      Could also be a combination of components from multiple lifts

    I wonder if it could have come from telluride being lift 3 or 4, I think they both where very long bottom terminals
