    According to Ascutneys 1982 trail map there were actually 3 t-bars. There was the little eagle t-bar listed as 600 ft long (probably not exact and probably the hall t-bar listed with no name.) and the main and the west t-bars that were listed as 2250 ft long. Does anyone have information about approximately how long they were and what manufacturers they were?

    My 1969 ski atlas list the same vertical and lift length, except 2300’ for one T-bar as your 1982 trail map. The trail network looks the same except the East Chair didn’t exist. No manufacturer references.

      It could have been a hall, since Ascutney’s other lifts were built by them.

    The upper mountain used to have a 576 foot long Hall T-bar that was installed for the 1963-64 season. It was accessible from the midstation of the summit double. This T-bar was moved to the Sunrise Area and is probably the 600-footer on your 1982 trail map. The West T-bar was installed for the 1962-63 season and had three unloading stations, experts would unload at the top. I thought I read somewhere that they acquired this T-bar from another mountain, but I wasn’t able to find the reference anywhere. The Main T-Bar was installed new by Hall for the 1957-58 season at a cost of $45,000 (newenglandskihistory.com)
