My copy of the Byron Riblet book just arrived. It’s thin on details surrounding Riblet ski lifts as he [Riblet] was not interested or involved in them, but the coverage of Riblet’s mining tramway tech development is fascinating. Easy to see how some of it translated well over to the company’s ski lifts.
