    After the first season in 2012, short extensions were added to the tops of tower tubes on either side of Mountaineer run and where it crosses the road. You could easily touch a passing chair with your pole standing under the line on Mountaineer during the first season (I tried). They re-used tower tubes from the old CTEC fixed quad, but switched the heavy side to uphill for 90-degree loading, used detachable-length chair hanger arms instead of the stubby CTEC ones, and Doppelmayr sheaves mounted below the crossarms instead of inside added up to much lower clearance than the original fixed quad (now at Crystal Mountain WA)

      Some other tower tubes were extended for the original HSQ installation, but those were added at the bottom instead of the top. See the picture above of tower 6.
