    Every tower with the exception of tower 1 was reused from the former Yan triple.

      It’s almost like they stripped the sheaves off the original towers and then put the new tower lifting frames on top of them.

      It really shows when you compare the towers on Sunrise to the same-year vintage Little Pine (formerly Sunshine Accelerator).

        You can also tell by the still-embedded towers. All Doppelmayr hsqs (that are completely new installs & do not reuse towers) that I can think of use bolted footings.

    I’m curious why Sunrise Express only has 1,800 pph capacity when the other high speed quads around it all have 2,400 pph at minimum. It seems rather unusual for a base area HSQ.

      This is the third base area. (Skyliner doesn’t have a lodge, but it’s the popular passholder lot.) Not used full season, has some beginner stuff, not really marquee. Also, longer load times is easier for them beginner types.

      Also also, see above reused Yan parts from the old triple, maybe? Both are conjecture from a fan of but not employee of Mt Bachelor.
