J4 – June Mountain, CA

Here’s another lift that was heavily modified in 1986, when Yan built a funitel, high-speed quad and four new fixed-grip terminals at June Mountain.
Height adjustable Yan return up top. Notice how lightly loaded some of those sheaves are with the bullwheel at its lowest position.
Look closely and you’ll notice this lift used to begin next to J2 and J3. The new loading point used to have loading in both directions.
Another view down the line with SLI chairs and Riblet clips.

    Does anyone know why this lift was shortened?
