Lift 2 – Taos, NM

Poma built four fixed grip quads at Taos between 1989 and 1995 to add capacity and replace older lifts. This was the last and shortest of the four constructed.

    Lift 2 feels odd not having footrests when the other fixed grip quads have them, even Lift 8 (which this lift works in tandem with).

      It is unusual that there’s a safety bar without footrests. Most of us NM skiers don’t put down the safety bar anyways, regardless of whether there’s a footrest or not.

    You can see the old Lift 6 lift line in pictures 1, 3, and 6
