    Any pictures of the old Spirit Express? I’d be curious to see a Borvig HSQ.

      I recall seeing some photos of it on skilifts.org. It looked a lot like a Doppelmayr version of the Liberator Express at Mission Ridge. Since whoever runs that website is more anemic than the first Bush Administration, I’ve given up on ever being able to log in again.

    On Google Earth, you can see the old Spirit Express. Just go back in time to 2010, then you get a good view of the lift.
