    Does anyone know what Mohawk was? I see it as a manufacturer for a removed quad that was built in 1965.

      It was an early lift company that didn’t last long. They built one of the first detachable chairlifts in the world at a small ski hill in New York. There’s more history in this article here: https://skiinghistory.org/news/first-flopped

        Von Roll built lots of detachable chairlifts starting in the 1940s, so I’m not sure how that one would qualify as one of the first.

    Why so many detachables?
