    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
    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

      Green and orange look more like Brandles or Reoblings rather than hall even the sheeves terminals and chairs too
