    This lift was converted from a fixed grip quad built in 1985. This is the reason for the portal tower at the bottom, and the reason the chairs have three-T-bar footrests that you see on lifts like Gent’s Ridge.

    This lift is always so miserable and windy. This is probably not going to happen, but they should put bubble chairs on this lift. It would make it so much better.

      I think that’d necessitate converting the lift to 90 degree loading and modifying the unload area.
