1 – Beech Mountain, NC

Gorforth Brothers built at least five lifts at Beech and only part of this one remains.
Doppelmayr provided new line equipment, chairs and a new drive terminal at some point.
The towers are original but have had new sheave assemblies welded on.

    The return terminal is Go forth brothers with a Doppelmayer bullwheel.

    All over the internet. A skier or boarder ran into a snow making hydrant, breaking it and causing the leak. The pipe did not burst.
