This lift originally had 19 towers and 100 chairs, just like the Santiago Express and Ruby Express. However, in 2014, it received an additional 24 chairs as part of a capacity upgrade, these 24 chairs being displaced from the Peru Express and the original Montezuma Express.

(2014 was also when the upper terminal was repainted from beige to forest green to match the bottom terminal and the repainted terminals on all of the other lifts)
From 1991 to 1998, this bore the distinction of being one of those high speed quads that wasn’t accessible from another detachable chairlift (unless one rode the Outpost Gondola to bypass North Peak), since at the time, North Peak had only fixed grips on it. This stopped being the case once the Santiago Express was built.
