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

      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.

        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.

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

      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.

        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.
