Yeti Cruiser – Sasquatch Mountain, BC

A used Doppelmayr high speed quad was originally planned to replace the former Red chair but a Leitner-Poma quad was chosen in 2019.
Loading area under the Alpha drive.
The lift runs relatively fast for a fixed quad thanks to a Chairkit loading carpet.
The first two thirds of the lift line is relatively low angle while the last part is steep.

    Nice sleek lift. Would have been nice to have the High Speed Quad installed, but hey, it’s still a nice new quad.

    If they got a HSQ line gauge and terminals would this lift be possible to convert?

    It’s rare to see a depression tower where there are more sheaves on the light side than on the heavy side. I’ve only seen one other lift with such towers, and that’s the Kensho SuperChair.

      Most mid-line depression towers tend to have more sheaves on the light side than the heavy side, especially if the lift is bottom drive.
