    Just to be nitpicky, the High Lonesome lift wasn’t removed– it was converted to a detach.

    Likely the old Apollo. They probably use parts off of it to keep Looking Glass going, but even that lift’s days are numbered.

      It was a tension return terminal. Riblet were one the first chairlift manufactures to introduce hydraulic tensioning. If you look at the destructive testing video with the fire one the top terminal jolts backwards because of the cable snapping at the bottom. The top terminal could be upgraded by someone else like Yan or Poma but I dont know.
