    A couple of updates to the table above:

    Purple – Installed in 1994, was the relocated and modified Dories lift.

    As far as removed lifts:
    1958 – original center-pole double chair was installed in 1958 and removed in 1978 when the Green Quad lift was instailled. I believe it was a Poma

    1961 – original Yellow, the second lift installed, was installed 1961 and removed in 1989 when replaced the Yellow Triple was installed. The original Yellow was a centerpole double chair and was relocated to Mt. Holiday near Traverse City, MI

    1971 Blue Lift, currently still operational, at least for the 2019-2020 season

    1972 Dories Lift; replaced by the Red Chair in 1993 and repurposed and relocated into the Purple lift in 1994.

    All subsequent lifts were installed by current ownership:

    1978 Green – Riblet 4; underwent overhaul in 1996 replacing the center-pole chairs with bail-style chairs to match the other Riblet Quads, new tower heads, new drive motor, new lower terminal with hydraulic tensioning replacing the original counterweight system

    1979 Orange – Riblet 3; underwent overhaul in 2002 receiving new chairs, new drive motor, and new lower terminal with hydraulic tensioning replacing the original counterweight system

    1989 Yellow – Riblet 3
    1991 Brown – Riblet 3
    1993 Red – Riblet 4
    1997 Black – Riblet 4
    2008 Gray – Superior 4 (made mostly from Riblet service/replacement parts)

      The Gray lift is a triple, not a quad.
