    Did this lift go to scrap?

    I believe it went to 49 Degrees North in Washington.

    Thankyou! I remember riding the lift as a kid and was just curious what happened to it!

      It did go to 49 Degrees North WA, it’s now the Angel Peak Lift there. I’ve spent many hours doing line work on this thing at that mountain!

          Only issue we had was bird chewing through the SJ wire on tower 5 for the derail circuit! It’s a solid lift and works well for us. Only thing I CANNOT stand is the dang uni-body sheaves! We don’t have the proper equipment to pull out the tire……good thing we have another nearly complete Yan that we bought for parts LOL…..old Millicent from Brighton

          Ben Eminger- I’ve got some info on machines that are used to reline those uni-body sheaves if you want to send me an email at mweise64 at msn dot com.

        Heh, I remember back when Crystal was planning to reinstall the old Millicent double on the old Bullion Basin liftline.

        Speaking of which, when is a high speed quad coming to 49* North?
