    This was actually one of the YAN HSQ that was retrofitted by Dopplemayer

    What’s that blue thing to the left of the top terminal in second picture?

      I think it is something to do with the old parking rail from the old yan detachable. Or something to hang the trail map from. It doesn’t look like its in use anymore. Or just could be for decoration. Its a odd object though.

    Confirmed on the wind fence / deflector and on a windy day its benefit can be felt by the passenger for sure!

    Are you sure this is from 1990? Pretty sure they were still using the DT grips then, and the Yan retrofits only began in 1996 (unless they did it beforehand) but the spacejet didn’t come out until a few years later.

      1990 is the Lift Engineering installation date. 1996 is the Doppelmayr retrofit year.
