One thought on “High Lift – Crested Butte, CO

  1. I think it’d be kinda practical if a low capacity double chairlift that began down in Paradise Bowl replaced the lower section of High Lift, and High Lift was cut back to start at its midway unload point, which would make it possible to still get to these areas even when Silver Queen goes down.
