    out of curiosity, if they had made this lift a hsq, mid at sunnyside, and gone to the base, with bi-directional loading how do you think that would have worked?

      Not enough space for it to work out.

    Any idea why this uses LPOA style sheaves instead of SkyTrac style sheaves? Considering the large amount of CTEC equipment at PCMR, I’m surprised they opted for LPOA style sheaves.

      How likely is it that SkyTrac has any CTEC left in them after being owned by LPOA for 3 construction seasons?

          Oof. Now that you mention it, for sure! The bullwheel and the idler sheaves are mounted on the return terminal mast in a very similar fashion to the Orion terminal as well. It makes sense. . .guess I was just not paying attention.

        The CTEC sheaves are still available; I would assume that since the LPOA sheaves come with sealed roller bearings and semprit liners standard for around the same price has caused them to become the more popular option, in fact, only one new Skytrac lift this season got the CTEC style sheaves.

    Is there a reason why Park City went with SkyTrac for Over and Out, instead of Doppelmayr who had just built a Gondola and a Six pack for them in 2015?
