    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!”

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