    Is BM Lifts still in business making new lifts?

    How much do you think this lift would cost for somebody to buy it?

      Just emailed Danielle McGovern, the supervisor of lift operations about this. She responded with this:

      “We are not selling the single chair, nor necessarily looking to sell the chair in the near future.”

      She also said this about the future of the lift:

      “The last time it was used was October. It has been used for Ski Jumping in the small bowl for several years. Going forward the ski jumping site will be de-commissioned but considerations to continuing the use of the chair for training sites is where we are at with it right now. Hope that helps!”

    New update on this beauty!

    Medal Maker (name of the Single chair), is set to be used as the lift for a sloped airbag development site starting August 2019.

          Not quite.

          I don’t really count that one as it uses a T-Bar frame and is a private lift. It basically takes an old t bar along with custom fabricated parts to make a private ski lift.

    Doppelmayr towers, Borvig sheaves, and lots of other stuff…..What you said sums it up best.

      Towers and sheaves are all BM Lifts design.

    this lift doses not appear on the map of win sport the eastside runner dose. I think they should open the ski jumping side of the hill to the public since the ski jumps are decommissioned as will as the eastside runner quad I would like to see both of these chairs operate sometime in my lifetime.
