Little Horse – Cooper, CO

The Tennessee Creek Basin expansion opened in early 2020 with a Leitner/Skytrac T-Bar.
The towers were manufactured by Skytrac while other components were fabricated in Italy by Leitner.
This was one of the first lifts to utilize Skytrac and Leitner components following the acquisition of the former by the latter.

    The sheave assemblies are the only part from Italy used on the towers, the tower heads and walkways came from SLC

    Interesting how the ladders are rotated 90 degrees from the tower. It makes sense considering the tilt of the towers, but it’s still really interesting.

    The lift is named after Joe ‘Little Horse’ Romero, who was our welder/machinist at Copper for a long time and spent his weekends teaching skiing at Cooper.
