    Was the Omega already out? Most poma detachables I’ve seen from this era were Competition/Challenger (I can’t remember which). This must have been one of the first.

      No sixes were build with those terminals. Quicksilver at Breck is a ’97 poma omega, vail also has 4 late 90’s poma detachable omega quads on Blue sky basin.

    What grips does this lift have?

    This lift’s unloading ramp is too early and starts when the lift is still slowing down into the terminal. Because of this, you can unload faster if you unload early.
