    Originally this lift was named Betsy. It’s name was changed around the same time when they replaced Victoria Station and Blossom lifts and named the new lifts Molly’s Run and Stormin Norman.

    Why is this lift even here? It only has 46 vertical feet! Timberline lodge should have put a surface lift here. Also, is there any tensioning on this lift?

      I agree. They basically built a hill for the top station to go on. That’s 40 of the 46 vertical feet!

        Carpet lifts were not around when this lift was installed and Timberline is planning on replacing this lift with a carpet in near future.

      For children’s lessons there has been a carpet lift since about 2002, but it is not open for general use. This chair is great for novices and beginners to learn how to load and unload from a chairlift and ride a non-intimidating slope.

      There is tensioning, at the top. The hydraulic ram is hidden between the terminal c-channels, and the pump is on the mast (it appears- might be just the accumulator).

        It is an extremely user-friendly lift. It helps ski and boarding teachers instruct using a lift especially to the novice skiers which are attracted to this area. Furthermore, it helps students learn the skills they need for the other lifts at Timberline.

    This is a great run to warm up on before I hit the PALMER LIFT and on. I always start here.

    In the second to last pic, you can see Mt. Hood Meadows’ Vista Express.
