    The vault drive was used for a grip room long after the rest of the lift ended up here, and when in use it had a 60s flyover tension-return at the top of Green Valley.

    I’m the pictures it looks pretty sad, but it looked great in person today! The ride time is a slow 10.5 minutes but it serves a fantastic little ski area!

    Chair 2 at Crystal was Iceberg Ridge that got replaced by Rainier Express in 88′ right?
