    Not bad for the ski area doing most of the install, though there looks like there was an alignment challenge on the return, the lift looks good.

      Since you are actually qualified to answer this, I’ll ask: what was the alignment challenge?

        I didn’t work on the project but it looks like the top concrete is pointing off centerline to the the chair riders right and that they had to get creative mounting the tower 16 crossarm to the terminal beam.

          I see it. Kinda resembles the DT of A-lift where you can see the rope isn’t parallel with the motor room wall.
