    The lift that replaced Ski Baba is a magic carpet called “Grommet”.

    Grand Summit Express received a LPA roof over the bottom flat roofed YAN return and new LPA quad chairs in 2011 when LPA built the Bluebird Express.

    Who manufactured the weird conveyor belt chairlifts they used to have here? Pretty sure the last one got removed in 1997.

      They were home built by mount snow’s longtime owner Walt S.

    Any information about the “Aircar” Tram?


      • Utah Powder November 30, 2019 / 12:22 pm

        Did Carlevaro-Savio make any other trams other than the Aircar?

          They also made the Wildcat gondi (2 seater) 1957-97; the Sugarbush gondi (3 seater) 1958-84 and the original Killington gondi 1968-94. That lift nearly bankrupted C-S. I knew about the gondolas. When I checked Liftblog’s data, I discovered C-S built Sugarbush’s Castlerock 1959-2001 and Gate House 1963-95. Both were double chairs. Of course, there may be others.

          C&S also built a few doubles at Pico, and they also built a few lifts in partnership with Poma (Hunter’s original double chairlift and the original Killington Chairlift), among others in New England: I think the only two C&S chairlifts still operating (that haven’t been heavily modified) are Bonanza and Outpost at Pico.

          C&S went bankrupt while building Killy’s original gondola, and Killy was very close to going bankrupt as well.

        C&S also built the Valley House Double at Sugarbush in 1960. An interesting fact is that the Sugarbush gondi had 2 passenger cabins until a 1973 fire when the lift was rebuilt with 3 passenger cabins.

          Interesting, I never that about the Sugarbush gondi.

    I saw the car(s) while skiing in 1974. I think there were just two, with fitted grips. Judging from the last photo on ( the grips couldn’t go through the terminals. So they reversed directions for each trip across the lake. I was on a New England ski trip with fellow students from Penn State. I believe the outdoor pool and indoor skating rink were operating. Yes, and those chain chairlifts were running. There was a bubble chair lift in addition to the two “gondolas”. You pulled the bubble down from above.

      If I am correct, the restaurant inside the Snow Lake Lodge is the former bottom terminal.

      But as listed in New England Ski History, G-1 went 3/4 of the way up while G-2 went from somewhere around mid to the top, G-2 also had some towers added by PHB according to


  6. Tom White November 30, 2019 / 3:45 pm

    Oh, of course Carlevaro-Savio built the two Mt. Snow gondolas. They also built 3 double chairs there: Beaver, Snowdance and Sundance.


  7. Mason Schade December 24, 2019 / 8:22 am

    G2 was the second gondola correct? I’ve seen pictures of two C-S Gondi’s here.

    The Sundance double chair had bubble added at sometime in the mid 60’s

    Here’s a picture of it:
