I find the lift identification pages on this site to be a great source of information. They certainly helped me to better understand ski lift history when I was fairly new to the site. However, I do have a few suggestions to make.

The first suggestion is about the Doppelmayr CTEC page. The page shows three different terminal styles for what is referred to as UNI-M (the second generation of UNIs). However, there really should be four. The terminal that is missing is the one the was introduced by Doppelmayr in 1997, which is slightly different than the one that was introduced in 1996. I think it would be a good idea to add this terminal to the Doppelmayr CTEC page. Here is a picture:

My next suggestion is about the Leitner-Poma page. The page mentions the Satellit terminal as being the terminal used in Europe by Poma, however, considering that the Multix terminal is now the more prevalent terminal style being used in Europe by Poma, I think that a picture should be added for the Multix as well. Here is the picture:

Please consider the above suggestions for the new site. Thank you.

Haha, well that's embarrassing. Sorry about spelling suggestion wrong in the topic title.

Why don't we have a forum Lift Identification thread where the main post is the 'sheet' and people can help make changes by posting suggestions there.

If I get permission from the Mods then maybe I will set one up

I plan on giving your site some of my own photos of LPA terminals (from the Kensho SuperChair or the High Noon Express lift) for you to utilize when the new site does come up.

FYI, to the best of my knowledge, the UNI-GS terminal design has been phased out. Doppelmayr USA is only offering the UNI-G now for its detachables.

That's why I have noticed every ski resort installing new lifts lately has been using the UNI-G (If installed by Doppelmayr obviously)! I thought a lot of ski resorts have just been wanting the UNI-G, but I never thought they would phase out the UNI-GS. How long has that terminal been phased out? One or two years?

It's likely been off the market since 2011, based on Snowbird and Deer Valley installing Uni-G lifts in 2012 when they have existing Uni-GS models
