    In one of the pictures it says “Prepare to unload raise footrest”. This obviously is not accurate becuase the bars don’t have them

      When you buy signs in bulk, they all have to say the same thing. Our L-lift also has lap bars without footrests, but that’s what we have for signage.

    I think this is mislabeled on the spreadsheet. It is a Heron-Poma with a Yan drive.

      Correct. In fact, the machinery housed *in* the drive terminal is original Heron.Here’s the background: in the winter of ’77 the Molly Hogan lift at Arapahoe Basin got hit by an avalanche, mangling the drive terminal. That next summer the Basin built Pali, Exo, and Norway and replaced Molly. We bought (for a song, I’m sure) the remains of Molly; the following summer when we built A-lift Yan rebuilt Molly for us as what you see here.
