    Is this a Galaxy drive/tension terminal with the Uni-GS style motor room?

      Looks like it to me. Lookout Triple at Whiteface is basically the same, but has Doppelmayr-style chairs.

      Or you could look at it as a Uni-Star with tensioning. I never knew what this one was called but it’s also at Red Mountain and Badger Pass.

        It almost looks like a Tri leg alpenstar with tensioning. But the back windows are slightly different.

        This motor room design is also on the wish bone pulse quad at snow valley, AB.

    I believe this was directly built on the lift line of the double chairlift that it replaced.

      That it was. The double used to run on this path all the way to the base of Great Escape, with a midway load near the current base of this triple.

      The areas near Spokane looooved their long centerpole riblets.
