Spirit Ridge – Sunrise Park, AZ

Borvig built this lift in 1989 along with Rustler.
Riding up the line.
Tower 12.
Arriving at the drive.
There seems to be some Yan-style tubing on this lift. Leftover from previous lift projects?
View down the lift line.
Lower section of the lift.
Side view of the drive.
Another angle of the funky top terminal.
This station looks Yan-esque with Doppelmayr sheaves.
Why so many tubes for a simple return bullwheel?

    I have a feeling that the Apache tribe contracted with Yan in 1989 to build 2 new quads, but then decided to go with Borvig because it was even cheaper, or maybe because they heard about the maintenance issues on Yans of that vintage.
