Chairlift – Sitzmark, WA

This vault drive double was relocated to this small ski area from Mt. Bachelor in the 1980s.
The bottom bullwheel.
Looking up the short lift line.
Two different tower Riblet styles.
Top unloading ramp.
This tension carriage is probably much larger than it needs to be for such a short lift.
Top terminal and counterweight.
Breakover towers.
Middle part of the line.

    Standing? I thought this area was still in business.

        Peter, given that an organization still maintains it, I think it should be listed as operating. There is still an active group that tries to open the hill each winter, and the lift is still in pretty good shape. I believe the main reason it hasn’t opened for the last couple of years is due to lack of snow.

          My guess would be the Red Chair. Bachelor also removed their Black Chair around this time, but I think that one is at Hesperus, CO.

          It makes sense that Sitzmark would just keep the same paint job.

    What lift at Mt Bachelor was this?

      I’m pretty sure this was Red before the triple replaced it.

    They are still trying to open this year if the weather cooperates.

    Unfortunately the local schools won’t come up on Thursdays so they will only be open on weekends this year, if at all.

    Wow. A colored chair. Hadn’t seen on in a while
