      This link has a photo of it. I might have some stored away on a hard drive, but none I can pull up right now. It was a 1989 Doppelmayr UNI with a tire contour and “80s style” carriers (not EJ) that ran parallel to this alignment, on the other side of the trees. Lift hasn’t been scrapped to my understanding.

          Second photo down also shows the old defunct Chair 2. Both lift huts are still present to this day at the resort. Bottom one is used for all the night lighting electrical panels and storage, and the top shack is now the terrain park building.

    This lift also runs year round, servicing the excellent bike park in the summer. The top unload platform is a convertible design and lifts up to be flat for bikers and pedestrians to unload in summer months. The lift is designed for downloading pedestrians (and the occasional wedding party – true!) as well, with a safety bar also present at the bottom terminal. Copeland Express graphics on the terminals have finally been added this past season (2022).
