    Off all my times skiing Schweitzer, I’ve never seen this lift run. I guess it’s only a backup for if the Great Escape goes down.

      It is generally a backup for if great escape goes down, I’ve also seen it run on peak weekends and race weekends. It’s a pretty sketchy to ride, and it scared the crap out of me as a kid. Of course its solid, just rickety old double.

    I hated this thing all growing up. Had some major loading failures on it. It’s due to be replaced next, IMO.

    Before the installation of Great Escape in 1990, this chair was the only access to what is now outback bowl.

    This chair used to have bubbles in the 1970s! Cool photo here:
