    Most of the cabins are blue, but why are a handful yellow? Seems like an odd ratio

      There’s a turnaround at the midstation for both sections, and they usually run them independently. Both sections have their own drives too afaik. They are basically two separate lifts that can be linked together at the mid.

      As for access, there’s a road and small parking lot at the midstation.
