    I’m pretty sure that bridger came from gonanza park(parlys summit tubbing hill it use to be a ski resort… I think it came in the 1990’s)

      Are you sure it came from there? I found an interview of the former owner and it doesn’t mention anything about a Thiokol double there. Lift 1 for sure came from there. I’ve only heard that Lift 2 came from Parley’s Summit verbally, I have yet to find any documentation.

      Here’s the interview I’m referring to:

        Nordic Valley opened in 1970 with a Hall double. If that lift came from Gorgoza, then it was sold before they closed in 1971. In 1971, a second double chair was installed at Nordic. According to an interview with someone from Thiokol, this was one of their first four lifts.

    Here is some information I got from an employee at Nordic Valley:

    Apollo/Lift 1 was relocated from Parley’s Summit. Bridger was also relocated from there.

    Lift 5 is going to be a top drive and bottom tensioning. Most of the parts have arrived for the whole lift.

    I was also told that Nordic Valley has approval from the forest service to build a gondola from Ogden to the top of the ridge.

    I forgot to add that they also plan to replace all of their existing chairlifts.

        Yeah, but Hall and Thiokol/early CTECs look similar in terms or towers and carriers, so there is that.
