    This was the first chairlift at Elk. It originally had the Hall “Cathedral” style carriers, these were later replaced. The only other lift I know of with these chairs was Chair 1 at Big Tupper, NY

      Those are cool. I didn’t know Hall ever did another style of carrier beyond the two modifications of the one you see everywhere. Kinda reminds me of the Poma ‘teardrop’ carrier seen in Europe and a handful of American areas.

        Hall’s main two models were the wood slat chair used primarily in the 60s and the maintenance-free plastic seat chairs with the metal backrests (Which this lift has). The two rarest models would be these cathedral chairs and Hall center poles, the only lifts I know of to have the latter are Blue at Bousquet, MA and the former High Campbell at Crystal, WA.

          Old chair 6 is the only centre-pole Hall I had ever seen as well.

      There was also a hall double with cathedral style chairs at Hidden Valley Highlands in Ontario.
