    Just curious, do you know where the lift at Silverton Mountain came from?


    • Peter Landsman July 27, 2017 / 6:13 pm

      Chair 15 at Mammoth, I believe. I know I still need to add Silverton to the database along with Crested Butte, Monarch, Monarch Crest and Royal Gorge.

        You’ll enjoy Crested Butte, I’ve been there a couple times before. They have this cool old Riblet Center Pole Double called Teocalli too that still regularly runs.

        Chair 15? Boy, that’s quite the change in pitch.


      • Maxwell Uguccioni March 12, 2019 / 10:17 pm

        Can’t be chair 15 because chair 15 had non-bullwheel loading just like 12, 13, and 14.

      It came from Mammoth. It’s to my belief that he got the lift for free too since he was an employee there for a number of years before starting up Silverton.

    I heard that he found it in the dump from the newspaper, and then installed it by hand

    I see you added Crested Butte, so you’re only 2 away from finishing Colorado. One small error I noticed in the Crested Butte page is that the Red Lady Express actually replaced a Poma triple which became East River, till it was replaced with another high speed quad. The page for that lift says it replaced a Riblet double.

    Cranor ski area poma?


    • Peter Landsman January 15, 2019 / 3:07 pm

      I went by there when I skied Crested Butte and it was closed with no trespassing signs everywhere. Also need to get Silverton still.


    • Peter Landsman February 2, 2019 / 9:31 pm

      I was able to ski Cranor today. Just two Colorado lift left to get…the Lake City Poma and Silverton double chair.

    Don’t forget Chapman Hill in Durango.

    Does anyone know why Rendezvous and Sierra are Yan lifts with Doppymyer chairs?


    • Michael February 10, 2019 / 9:11 pm

      Both R & S lifts have not only Doppelmayr chairs but also sheave assemblies. The 82 & 83 Yans had the S-2 Sheave assemblies that were succeptible to sheave flange failure. The chairs with the plastic seats ( that we named “The flying couches”) were very comefortable but thought to be unsafe after the Teller lift accident at Keystone- thus the chairs were also replaced.


      • V3 April 18, 2019 / 8:09 pm

        R & S had the all steel yan chairs when I first started at Copper, those chairs went to loveland for chair 2 when the D-CTEC chairs replaced them in 2006 so the new chairs must be the 3rd set on the lifts.

    I’d be curious to hear the details on old Geneva Basin’s chairs if anyone has the info.


    • pbropetech December 11, 2019 / 11:54 am

      They had a ‘high-speed’ Pomalift, which was most likely like the old H-90 at Loveland or similar to our old Storm King. There was a Heron centre-pole double, much like old chairs 1, 2, 3, and 4 at Loveland aside from the chairs. The last owners were in the process of building a Borvig triple but never completed it due to financial constraints. More info at

    Once again a lost area looks to reopen only to disappear back into darkness. I’m guessing they gave up on Stagecoach?

    Does any one know what happened to the lift at Heritage Square in Golden? It’s a hall double.


    • Ramcharger_8 December 17, 2019 / 9:51 am

      most of heritage square shut down and they took out the alpine slide and the lift. I dont know what they did with the lift i just know that it isnt there anymore

    Anyone know where the Poma triple at Pike’s Peak went? It was only a few years old when removed.


    • Snow Boys March 4, 2020 / 2:29 pm

      It went to Franz’s at whistler.


  12. axewolfe March 4, 2020 / 1:39 pm

    That triple was moved to Whistler as the peak chair and was relocated to what is now the Franz’s triple
