    The Orange lift was originally installed in 1978 when Nubs Nob South opened. The lift was extensively overhauled in 2002 when it received new chairs, new drive controls, drive motor, and a new lower terminal with hydraulic tensioning replacing the older counterweight system.
    In more recent years, several of the sheave assemblies have been replaced.

    I believe T-12 was removed at some point in the early 90s when the Bayview run was added.

    This lift runs daily and at evenings for night skiing.
