    Why did they close their entire mountain because they couldn’t afford to replace rangely, when you can ski the whole mountain with the T-bar and Kennebago?

      Those of us on Snowjournal.com have wondered about this. The Berry family announced in early summer, if they didn’t get $3 million (about) to replace the Rangeley, they weren’t going to be opening for the next season. Why such a sudden announcement? Shouldn’t they have known the lift was going the previous season? No way could anyone, fund, remove the old and install a new (even used) lift in time for the next season. But they didn’t open, and it’s been quite a saga. There was never a reference from them about the T-bar or even renting cats with passenger cabins to get people up the mountain.

    You sure the T-bar got removed? Never saw that anywhere until now.

          It’s very redundant, especially with the new detachable.

          I think it is scheduled to be replaced, just not immediately.

    Why exactly did they urgently need to replace Rangely and when they didn’t have the funds to, they shut down? It had a new drive and controls so mechanically I assume it was fine.

      Don’t quote me on this, but if I recall correctly the lift was deemed unsafe due to foundation concerns.
