    This was the first Birds of Prey Express lift, using the name from 1996 to 2003 before the Doppelmayr high speed quad that replaced Westfall took up the name.

    These aren’t ej chairs right? So what is the model name?

      These are called Garaventa carriers. They were co-developed with CTEC, and are supposed to be the next generation after CTEC’s mid 80s carrier design. When Doppelmayr USA and Garaventa CTEC merged into Doppelmayr CTEC, these became the standard model. They have since been discontinued in favor of the EJ, which is too bad as I think these are more comfortable.
