    Per a T-Bar aficionado on Snowjournal 2.0, this is actually a used Roebling T-Bar moved from an unnamed area in Michigan, with year also unidentified. The tower design, sheaves, and T-Bar hangers are all quite different from pics of existing Sneller T-Bars on this site and others. Also, the Sneller length stats seem way off. Maybe they doubled the length back then since that is about how long the haul rope is? Anyway, this may be the last Roebling T-Bar in operation.
