    Was this the only Horth bros lift?

      There were a couple of Hjorth lifts at Squaw Valley. The story goes that they were sitting in a yard somewhere in Nevada and whomever owned them said that all of the parts could be had for $200,000. As related to me, they were new, never installed lifts. Squaw owner Alex Cushing got wind of the deal and bought all the parts. One of the lift maintenance guys laid out a line and just dropped in a tower every few hundred feet. This worked out OK on one lift, but not as well on the other, where the downline would ‘float’ above the sheaves on one tower when the upline was full.

    The structure over the bottom terminal is new. It used to be exposed, according to the pictures.

      Pretty sure that was during the time when they were replacing it. No mountain would leave their motors out in the elements like that.

          And Kelowna Mountain BC left their Hall Triple chairlift uncovered when they built it in 2012. Since the ski area closed, the lift’s motor and gearbox have been exposed to the elements, much like Magic’s green chairlift.

    Sorry, I should have provided this video of the chairlift I was talking about. It is a relocated hall triple, sent to the mountain in 2012. It only has three carriers on the line, and a Leitner-Poma top bullwheel and lifting frames. The place is called Kelowna Mountain, and it is in a state of disrepair. The lift has never been open to the public.
