New Blog about Lifts

There is no shortage of interest and information about ski lifts on the internet.,, and are some of the best sites.  But as far as I know, no one has attempted to create a frequently updated blog about what’s going on in the lift world.

I am going to try.  My name is Peter Landsman and I work in the lift operations department at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.  But long before I started working in the industry, I was a skier and lift nut.  Over the last 15 years I created a database with statistics and pictures of every ski lift in North America.

My plan is to write longer form posts that fit more logically on a blog than a forum.  Please add your comments, contact me with ideas, or write a guest post and let’s see where this goes.

    Love this site so much! I check it almost daily. But one question Peter, do you really have stats and pictures from every ski area in North America?

      He doesn’t. There’s a lot of resorts that he still doesn’t have. One example that comes to mind is June Mountain, CA. He’s also missing the vast majority of the East Coast resorts.

        Yeah that’s what I thought… but doesn’t he claim to have them all?

          I have stats compiled for all of them. Still have a lot of pictures to take.

          Do you not post the stats until you have photos?

        Kai, I dont think so. If you look at Utah’s cherry peak there is a chairlift with no pictures but has stats.

        Acutally no its kind of random.

    Peter, have you thought about adding defunct ski areas to the blog? There are many sources of info for them and we could help you fill out spreadsheets too. Also, it could help with the statistics and backstories of relocated and removed lifts.
