    Those floating bull wheels are neat! I have never seen them anywhere else besides here. Granted I never go too far past New England.

    Never seen that type of chairs before. Any other lift with them? BTW the installation year I believe is incorrect.

      The chair bail and seat look sort of like Snowbasin’s Wildcat double, which is also a Poma. The Wildcat double also had safety bars for its first year, but were removed later on. Maybe this was a rare design for Poma chairlifts to have safety bars?
