The terminal which houses the motor, gearbox, auxiliary engine and drive and safety circuitry. It can be at either the top or the bottom of the lift ("top drive," "bottom drive.") A top drive lift is slightly more energy efficient than a bottom drive lift, but requires the ski area to run electric service to the summit, which can be very costly.
