    One of those other facilities surrounding the top station is the start ramp for the UCI World Cup DH track that is run every summer. Kinda cool.

    Note the clearly different sized sheave in picture No. 6. The depression sheaves appear to be 400mm, not sure about the larger sheaves.

      Why use different size sheaves? I note that Hall and Poma did too for a while.
