Easter – Kimberley, BC

The first half of this lift is very steep. It was the first lift built on the backside of Kimberley in 1975.
Counterweight tensioning.
The entire bottom terminal moves along a carriage, including the lift shack! The prime mover is a diesel engine.
This half tower was probably added more recently.
The chairs are also not original. They are from fellow RCR resort Nakiska and replaced centre pole versions.
Tower 12 just before the summit.
Fixed bullwheel up top.
View down the mellow upper section of the line.
View up at Tower 9.
