    I never noticed that Omega drive terminals are taller than return terminals until this page was posted last April. I think this is the case on all lifts built after the double stack drive was discontinued for the 2003 construction season. For 2003, only the metal part of the skin was extended like on Coleman Brook at Okemo so the windows remained the same as the return. For 2004, the new, taller window design made it’s debut. The double stack was only used on bigger lifts from 1998-2002 but on all 2003-2011 lifts the drive is taller than the return.
