    This lift was relocated from Stratton in vermont. I’m thinking this was the tyrolienne double and was manufactured by heron.

      Depends on when this was installed. Tyrolienne was removed in 2001. Suntanner and Standard were removed in 1995. Standard was newer than Suntanner or Tyrolienne which were both original lifts.
