    This was a relocated lift, installed sometime in the late 90s / early 2000s. I believe this was originally the Thunder chair installed on the other side of the resort.

    Disciples II supposedly made its last turns last weekend. D1 is still open for now but I expect it only has a week or two left as we’re going to get hit with some high temps soon

    Any word on whether those Disciples chairs will be sold or how I could purchase one?

    Could this lift have been the former Blue lift at Shanty Creek? With this lift having been installed in 1998 and its design being no newer than 1972, the only other lift that would have a similar design that has been removed would be Pine Knob’s chair 3, which was removed in 2014.

      This lift was originally the Thunder chair installed at Boyne in the 80’s. It had single chair hangers. The Shanty chair had double hangers similar to Valley at Highlands.

      Prior to being the Thunder chair at Boyne I believe portions of this lift to have been from the double chair at Thunder Mountain. The cross arms had extensions on them to allow triple chairs to be used on cross arms designed for double chairs.
