    Was there a power outage that day you took photos? Side view of base looks like the back-up motor is running.

    No safety bars?

      Alta didn’t have any bars until around 2010, and they’ve never added them to the doubles.

    This lift is scheduled to be replaced by a detachable quad sometime within the next 5 years or so. However, given that Sunnyside is also set to be replaced by a higher capacity lift, is a similar length, and is not old enough to be retired, I could see them moving Sunnyside over to replace Wildcat and installing a new lift at Sunnyside. The extra couple hundred feet in length would allow them to move the Wildcat base farther down next to Collins.
