    I noticed a lot of the tower foundations are reinforced now. Two steel beams running across the top (one behind the tower and one in front) with rods anchored into the ground. I wish I had taken a picture when I was there. I noticed Aurora had them as well on some foundations. Hopefully nothing to be worried about :-)

    The chairs on this lift especially (and more broadly on all the Borvigs here) are super uncomfortable. Boyne could do a great deal towards upgrading lift infrastructure simply by replacing them with something more modern.

      There is only one Borvig remaining: Locke. This and most of the fixed grip lifts are made by Yan aka Lift Engineering.

    I know this is predominantly an expert lift with no replacement on the 2030 plan, but while Boyne emphasized wind at Jordan as a factor in its replacement, the wind here can be worse from my experience. Constructing a building at the top to enclose the unload and bullwheel would go a long way for a low cost.
