    Anyone know the length of the bottom terminal? It looks awfully short, even though it’s a UNÍ-S.

    I don’t know the length but I do like the looks of it. The one major downside to it though is that it has a design speed of only 885 FPM. This reduces capacity and increases ride time. I don’t suspect that capacity was a concern when building this though as they definitely have enough space for a larger terminals.

    These are the short 1993-1995 UNI terminals. Camelback has them and so does Alpine Meadows on the Roundhouse Express. They only allow for speeds of up to 4.5 m/sec. Design capacity can be up to 2800 just like on the full length terminals. The chairs will just be spaced closer to make up for the lower speed. I think they went with the short terminals here because the lift is very short. They are cheaper to install, and the ride time isn’t increased that much with the short length. It’s also a beginner lift and wouldn’t likely run full speed even if it had the longer terminals.
