      I don’t believe it has shown up anywhere yet. But I also could not find it on the Cuchara property today. Maybe scrapped?

    Why was Chair 2 removed in the first place when 3, 4, and 5 were left standing?

      It’s a rope tow.

        The one in the 2nd pic isn’t lift 1, I think that one was lift 6.

        One minor correction- that’s not a rope tow but a wire roped Handle Tow. The handles have been removed.

    It appears that Chair 2 went to Hidden Valley, Missouri. The towers, drive terminal, amount of towers, length, return terminal carriers, and lift shacks match directly, along with the years not conflicting. It does list on the spreadsheet that he lift came from Alpine Valley, Wisconsin, but there weren’t any Riblet doubles removed from there at that time.

    According to Colorado Ski History, Lift 2 was removed in 2010.. and the dining lodge was demolished in 2010 as well.
