    What was the disposition of this lift? It had high hours so it probably couldn’t be reused in total. My guess is they kept some parts to use as spares for their other 80s doppelmayr HSQs.

      Some of the parts may have been used for the Doppelmayr FGQs at Mt Brighton in Michigan.

    Was this the first high speed bubble?
