    I think that, except for the top tower, this lift reused the old Jacob’s Ladder /Express lift tower tubes. If you look at where the lifting frame attaches to the tower itself (and compare it to other Poma HSQs) you can see how the two pieces were adapted to fit.

      It did indeed reuse the former towers of the previous fixed grip Doppelmayr triple. I’ve always wondered where that lift ended up as it was only 10 years old when it was replaced.

        Me too; I also always wondered why they didn’t replace Blue instead and leave the triple there for extra capacity.
