    I found chair 1 disassembled next to chair 3 and 13 on Google Maps.

    – Chair #1 was a single from AS&W installed in 1949 (https://snow-valley.com/about-snow-valley/): https://snow-valley.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/img-1924.jpg and https://snow-valley.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/img-1937.jpg
    – If it is correct that the first double was installed in 1960 and Hall (#2) was built in 1966, there are already two lifts missing in the list. But I would assume that the Hall was their second chair and #1 got replaced by Yan in 1973.
    – SAM lists a Yan double in 1985 for chair #1 (http://www.skilifts.org/old/install_na1985.htm) and a 1985 map (#13 is listed a new so the year is correct: https://skimap.org/data/539/7/1210647980.jpg) also shows a double not a triple (so do the maps after that), but Yan’s installation records say Triple with 1800 cap. What’s correct?
    – With regard to #2 and #6: Yan’s installation records show two new installations in 1983 for both #2 and #6. #2 did replace the Hall, but did #6 also replace the 1973 double or was it just integrated into the double-double? By the way, a 1980 map already shows the lifts as double-double: https://skimap.org/data/539/7/1209953410.jpg (#3 is not marked as a triple here, but #4 and #11 are > the year seems to be correct, but that might tell us that a double (#3) is missing in the list)
    – Yan lists #2 both as new and modified in 1973. Any idea why?
    – #4 received a Yan adjustable return terminal in 1982, #1 new line equipment in 1983 and #5 a new return tension terminal and AP? in 1988 with a reduction in length from 2880 to 2646.
