I don't think it's possible to dispute that Yan had a sense of style. I still think that their towers with the lifting frames, like on the Sun Valley quads, are the best looking towers ever made.

Your totally right about that SkiDaBird. Even though Yan's high speed quads didn't work as hoped, they were still some of the most beautiful lifts ever made. I'm a bit sad that I will never get to ride an unmodified Yan HSQ.
