    The towers on this lift look unnecessarily tall which could lead to wind issues; I’m curious if there was another factor in the design that favored taller towers.

    It also feels a bit weird to see a Doppelmayr lift at Mount Snow and I sort of wish they kept the color scheme consistent with the other lifts, but I’m glad to see a detachable on Sunbrook as the old lift had a long ride time and frequently stopped.

      The line looks like it has a substantial side hill on the lower half and the loaded side is into the hill so to get the specified clearance from average snow depth taller towers would be necessary. The upper half of the line it becomes more cost effective to have fewer taller towers than more shorter ones.
