    In the first picture, you say that it is a leitner-poma omega terminal, but in the spreadsheet, you say the lift is just a poma and was built in 1999, which was before the merger. Why is that?

      Omega is the terminal model. Poma is correct. I should not have said Leitner-Poma as this was pre-merger.

    What is the point of the barn covers on the terminals? Just for aesthetics or wind protection?

      Just as Peter posted in the description, to match the lifts of Blue Sky Basin, Chairs 37, 38, & 39

      The all-grey is pretty bleak, not gonna lie. Wish they’d have gone with something a bit more exciting.

        I think they should’ve gone with just the regular terminal designs.
