    those tower tubes look reused… the way i can tell is by the latter cause most dopplymayers look like a regular ladder those look like there early lift ladders like many riblets

      Would make a lot of sense as the prior lift was a riblet.

      If you are talking about Towers 1 & 2, those look like reused Yan towers- L.E. used those stirrups for many years. And we know that Squaw had quite a stock of old Yan equipment.👍

        I am pretty sure the first kt was a Heron replaced by a Riblet which was replaced by a Yan which was replaced by this. From what I heard the white wolf lift, which is pretty much abandoned, was the former kt double and it is a Yan.

    When the lift was replaced it was slightly realigned.
