    I remember “1976” being cast into the concrete base of the stream in the original tandem lift (which was built in 1976). That said, the stream tower is awfully close to the 2000′ topo line in google maps …

      I believe that footing was reused from the original double-double which was installed in 1976.

        Nice looking lift. But if water gets in that stream tower not good at all. It would be the same thing that happend to the excalibur gondola at whistler blackcomb. Ice jacking.
