    Do you know when the chairs got updated/modified? They do not have the center arm rest anymore….

    This is a very strange terminal model. Does anyone know what it was called?

      I believe it’s just a variant of the Uni (the first versions from 1989 – 1994). There were a bunch of different terminal enclosures, but the technology was the same until the discontinuation of the DS series grips and the official release of the DT series grips in 1995 (which brought with it the Uni-S/M/L, commonly referred to as the “Uni Spacejet” because of the terminal enclosure).

        Glacier Express at Blackcomb has the same skin.

        This particular variant of the UNI is the first generation UNI, but with a skin that causes it to look more like a prototype to the Spacejet terminal.

          This looks like a UNI but with maintenance walkways on the outer contour, kind of like the Spacejets at Telluride, just older.

    The armrests came off two season ago when the lift received new seat pads. The only lifts at Mt. Bachelor that still have the center armrest are Outback, Northwest and Summit.

    Originally 140 chairs, now just 124 chairs.

    When built, this directly replaced the Green and Blue chairs, running on the Green chair’s line.

    The Blue chair functioned as the anchor lift for a base lodge of its own, which now functions as the Junior Race Center.

    Heard that Skyliner “sustained damage to a major drive terminal component” from Bachelor’s website. Sounds like it’s bad enough that Doppelmayr is coming out to help with diagnostics. Any locals know what happened?

      Heard via the grapevine that the bullwheel bearings failed.
