    This chair has an interesting tower cap. Anyone know of others that are the same?

      Riblet built several of these in the 80s but none that I’ve seen have lifting gantries.

    Where did this lift come from? It was installed sometime in the late ’90s.

      After doing an extensive search on liftblog and skilifts.org, I believe this chair may have originated at Angel Fire Ski Resort in New Mexico as Lift 5, removed in 1996 (which is when this chair went in). Lift 5 at Angel Fire was built in 1979. I’m not sure if Riblet was still producing this chair design by 1979, but everything else about that lift matches up nicely with this lift.
