    The terminals are a little more like small Yan detachable terminals and during 2015, the offset tower was retrofitted by a CTEC tower with sheaves.

      It’s like Yan’s Uni-Star

    The offset tower was modified by SkyTrac, not CTEC proper (although it’s the same design). This is also DV’s only bottom-drive lift, likely because the top is next to the Stein Eriksen Lodge (in honor of a noble Viking).

    This was built at the same time as the Yan HSQ version of Carpenter. Viking and Red Cloud have enclosures to look like the HSQ terminal (as did the short-lived Quincy triple chair next to both of these, which lives on as Day Break at Canyons/Park City). I gather that Red Cloud was built out of parts of the old Carpenter (probably chairs and the drive terminal) and Viking was all-new in 1990. Crown Point was built out of the rest of Carpenter the same year (counterweight-tower bottom terminal from Carpenter and new drive terminal).

    The old Silver Queen lift at Silver Star is the only other lift I can think of with this style terminal. I believe they had some YAN HSQs so it may be why it was also like this.
