    I remember hearing somewhere that this lift was originally installed as Jay Peak’s original Pomalift on the UN trail in 1956; can anyone confirm or deny this?

    A couple years after its installation at Jay Peak, I believe it was lengthened to end near where the current Jet Triple ends, then shortened back to its original length when the Jet T-Bar was installed in 1959. At some point between 1971 and 1975 the Poma was relocated to the current Poma Line trail near the summit where it operated for a few seasons before possibly being relocated to Hickory.

    I am surprised that there aren’t more detachable platters in North America.
