    The Purple lift was installed in its currently location on the free Bigtime beginner area in 1994. Originally this was the Dories Lift that ran up through Dories Bowl until it was removed in 1993 when the Red Lift was installed.
    The upper terminal and hydraulic tensioning system replaced the counterweight system with carriage-mounted bullwheel when it was the Dories Lift.

    The lift runs at a slower speed since it services the beginner learning area.
    Lift runs every day and night.
