    Looks like a newer counterweight, I’d imagine they poured it when the lift was installed/relocated here.

      I’m not 100% sure, but I believe a new counterweight is poured anytime a lift is relocated, due to the different requirements of each location. Probably helps logistically too, rather than trying to transport a giant slug of concrete.

    How do you get in and out of that chair with those restraining bars? Where are the bars when loading?

      It looks like each side pivots up, so in the open position both of the restraints are in front of the center pole.

    Not that I’ve been there, but they look like you can flip them up. I think I’ve been in a chair with similar restrainings bars, might have been at June mountain.
