    Wow! I have never seen an entire Superior Tramways chair before. Are there any others?

    The Gray lift was engineered and built by Superior but mostly from Riblet service and replacement parts – chairs, grips, sheaves. The tower heads are custom. The motor room enclosure was found from somewhere out west and matches the motor rooms of the rest of newer Riblets at the ski area.

    This lift typically only operates on peak weekends and holidays.
