    When Vail Resorts acquired Mt. Brighton in 2013 they extensively overhauled the lift system.

    Red Lift -> Chair 1

    Black Lift -> Chair 2

    Blue Lift – St. Lawrence double, removed, this had centerpole double chairs

    Green Lift – Hall double, removed, this had bail-style double chairs

    Yellow Lift – removed, this I believe was a Hall triple, similar in design to Chair 1 with the lower terminal on rollers with a counterweight

    Orange Lift – Hall centerpole double, removed; some of the upper lift towers remain on the hill as light towers. The upper terminal had this funky dome over the bullwheel https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/61/Mt._Brighton_Ski_Hill.jpg
    In the last few years before it was removed I don’t ever remember this lift running as there were rumors it didn’t pass inspection/certification

    Siliver Lift – Chair 5
