    Interesting that the Uni-G was launched on a six pack instead of a quad. Usually, they launch new products as the standard

      Is the gauge an 8 person gondola on this lift?

        6.1 meter line gauge.

    Today this lift is down with a spacing issue, which is the 2nd time I know of this season that it has gone down, anyone know if an overhaul is planned or if it’s had one already? It runs summer and winter which accumulates to some pretty high hours.

    The 4th to last picture is also a good example of subtle changes overtime to the UNI-G enclosure design. Look at the underskin, the t-beam on the front mast is exposed, which does not happen in newer terminals. The shape of the underskin under the bullwheel (the bulged out part) is also different

    Wasn’t this one out of two of the first UNI-G terminals?
