In 2015, King Pine got a new Doppelmayr drive-tension terminal following a rollback incident.

Six years after the new terminal was added, Partek was hired to add an extra tower between the portal and tower 1.

Tower 0.5.
The tower labelled as 1 is actually the third tower.

    I don’t get to Sugarloaf as often as I wish, but the last time I was here (2020) it was down for the weekend due to mechanical issues, and I just spent the past four days this year (mid-week) and it was down for two of those days. Is it always that unreliable?

    If they just got Partek to make them a new tower how come they didnt just get Partek to replace the drive? It would allow more parts commonality
