Hey Eric, did you know this site has a picture gallery? It's on the front page of the nw-skilifts.com site, and is located on the left and it goes by states. Then theres Canada.nw-skilifts.com. Here you can find other canadian resort pictures like Whistler Blackcomb and Red Mountain. So theres a lot of pictures of Yan lifts in there. :)

Have fun. :)

Now that's a classic Yan Black Box if I've ever seen one. I wonder how many of those he built? There's about a dozen in my neck of the woods alone, including two at Copper.
The fixed-grip Yancake, on the other hand, is a new one to me. That looks , well, interesting, not least because it's painted such a garish colour...

Now that you mention it, that blue on the FG Yancake does look a little too bright.

Yeah it's not a very nice colour, dark blue would have been better :) I like the way the YanBoxes look painted all black like at A-Basin. That blue colour on our is from Blackcomb.

Which lift was yours when it was at Blackcomb, Allan? It would be odd if I had ridden it in an earlier incarnation. :D

I guess I haven't ridden your lift, then. The first time I went to Blackcomb they had just torn those out and all that was left was the Catskinner. Blackcomb must have spent a lot of money with a certain Carson City lift manufacturer in 1980... I think they opened with five Yans?

Yep. Oddly, they haven't removed Catskinner, probably because it serves the terrain park. As well, I think the Crystal chair is a Yan.

DV's has a whole bunch of Yanboxes, and one of the FG yancakes. The Viking triple, 5 towers, 30 chairs, has it. It was DV's last original Yan lift. Now they have 6 yanboxes, the Yancake FG, and one rounded-end Yanbox that looks a lot nicer than the rest of them.

True, a large number of them come to mind, but then again, the other design is still used in (perhaps slightly) greater proportion over the yanboxes.
