    What was the last year Von Roll built lifts? The fixed grip lifts here appear to have Hall grips.

      VonRoll bought Hall in 1982, and used Hall designs in North America until they were bought by Doppelmayr in 1996.

    Why does this ski area have no high speed lifts except the gondola?

      I don’t think they make enough money to afford detachable lifts. It’s a low budget operation

      Good question and yes, two high speed quads were once planned at Silver Mountain. However, JELD-WEN ran into some financial trouble during the recession and sold the resort for only $5 million to a local Seattle business man. No word if he wants to continue the master plan or not. For those who don’t know, JELD-WEN was at one time the world’s biggest door and window manufacturer and owned several large real-estate developments.

    Silver Mountain’s owner also owns 49° North. The mountains have combined for a total of zero new lift installations during the past 30 years, although they have had three total lift relocations during that time period. In particular, I think Silver Mountain has so much potential being only an hour away from Spokane, closer than every mountain except Mt. Spokane. Additionally, the Bike Park and Water Park diversify their revenue stream significantly compared to most ski resorts.
