    I believe Looking Glass is the oldest lift in Colorado still operating, and as far as I know, the only remaining center bar in the state. I really hope I’m able to snag a chair when it finally comes down. So many great memories as a kid.

      Primo at Sunlight dates back to 1966 install at Sunlight, and Segundo at Sunlight is a relocated lift from Aspen (probably old lift 2) which dates back to the late 50s or early 60s. It has lattice towers. Check it out. Both lifts are center pole doubles.

    I wonder when they’re going to replace this lift.
