    Where can I find construction for the new hot wheels lift?

      I’ve been looking for this for a while. Do you know if there’s one for Squaw?

      On the subject of the actual plan, I think that Rollers is dead. It is cool to see that they’re considering a detachable for Scott, and have down-the road plans for some surface lifts with which to access the ridge, as well as a replacement for Alpine Bowl.

        Rollers was going to be built simultaneously with the California Express gondola (in alignment 1) because the lift was to be accessible by skiers after taking the gondola to the Alpine Meadows angle station and unloading. However, with the new alignment, the lift would need to be relocated to be accessible at all.

        I have not found a master plan for Squaw, as there are so many plans for the proposed Squaw village expansion that it makes finding anything else near impossible.

      What manufacturer was the old Wiesel pass chair?


      • sethyboyi March 16, 2020 / 9:23 am

        It was a YAN


        • New England Chairlifts & Skiing March 16, 2020 / 9:35 am

          Are you sure about that? That lift was built in the early 60s, Yan didn’t start building lifts until 1968

    Yan started building lifts in 1965.

    Would agree it was 1968 at Squaw, with Belmont, Baileys Beach and Links. Those original Yan lifts had Poma grips, bullwheels and sheave assemblies. The yan T and D grips are basically Poma grips from the mid sixties.
