    Hey Peter,
    You should visit Silver Summit.
    They have 3 lifts, including an Alpine Lift T-bar, and one of 5 operating Murray Latta Ski lifts.
    Its basically a smaller Manning Park in BC.

      My uncle worked at the original Silver Summit and was a lift op when the original lift de-roped. He was the one who hit the button to stop it.

        Are they still open?

          They closed for a long time, but it looks like it reopened.

          I was just on their website, and it looks like they’re still closed for the 2020/21 season sadly. They hope to re-open next year, but I’m doubtful that’ll happen. More info on their website here:

    I almost forgot, the Calgary Stampede has a 1960s Hopkins double called “Westjet Skyride”. The lift is slow, but it gives an iconic feel to the amusement park. The lift only operates the 10 days a year the park is open.

    Public Health State of Emergency declared in the Province of Alberta, which forced the remaining ski areas that had not already closed due to Covid-19, to wind up operations for the season
