    Happy that this lift found new use. I skied it at Solitude a few times when I was learning to ski back in the 80s.

      What was it like, I learned to ski here in early 2000s on link but never saw moonbeam 2 (the lift here today).

        A characteristic of the Thiokol and then subsequent CTEC model up until the mid to late 80s was that these things were very smooth right between 400-450 FPM but then had a really neat “growl” to them at 500 FPM for the ones that would operate that fast. That was of course the vibrations from the motor as well as towers. But it always sounded very distinct vs YAN and the Heron/Poma FG lifts as I remember. I liked it. The old Wildcat and current Middlebowl at Snowbasin had these and I recall Moonbeam and Apex from Solitude having the sound as well.
