    Actual Lift name is Run of the Mill.
    This is the 3rd chair lift in this location. No t-bar lifts have been at this ski area.

        The top terminal structure looks very similar to Hunzinger, Hjorth, and American Cableways (maybe even Cosmos). There was most likely a previous lift on this alignment.

          This lift replaced an American Cableways double which itself came from Barn Mountain MI in 1978. The lift went to Frost Fire, and it was scrapped in 2018.

    Why does it say years of operation end at 1989?
