    The Green Lift was extensively overhauled and modified in 1996. The lift received new bail-style chairs replacing the original center-pole chairs. New drive motor, drive controls, tower heads, and new lower terminal with hydraulic tensioning replacing the counterweight design. The portal tower 14 was added at this time as well.
    The lift was repainted in 2019 into a brighter shade of Green than in the past.
    As said, this is the workhorse lift of the ski area and runs every day and night.

    Supposedly, the Green lift is being considered for replacement in the next few years. As the workhorse of the ski area, it was installed in 1978, had a major overhaul in 1996 and I believe had a cable replacement in ~2013/4.

    Supposedly they are considering whether to replace as-is with a fixed grip quad, but also considering the feasibility/costs/trade-offs of a high-speed quad.
