    Awesome, glad to see Michigan ski areas are getting posted. I’ll add some comments and history in for the areas and lifts where I have some additional background.

    If Peter does the upper penninsula, he should cross into Canada and get pictures of Searchmonts lifts

        Nice! I’m curious as to how Mt Hood Meadows’s old Texas chair is doing there.

    Mount Mancelona has a functioning Doppelmeyer T-Bar, erected in 1958. (Currently it is powered by a 23hp Briggs and Stratton lawn mower engine). NOT open to the general public….. but everyone is invited to stop in for a visit and chat!!!

    Ski Brule looks like it has some interesting lifts… a few Muellers and Riblets.


    • yooper skier August 4, 2021 / 9:59 am

      Two Mueller’s and three Hall’s plus one Hall T-bar. The front T-bar is a Doppelmayr.

    Can anyone confirm the lift manufacturer of the double chair lift at the defunct Skyline Ski Area/Resort? It looks like a Hall to me.

    • Jack L September 5, 2022 / 8:00 pm
