      Small company, based in Quebec. Only built a handful of lifts, a few of which are still operating (in Quebec).
      Here’s a picture of the old Timberland Standish chair:

        Timberland-ellicot also built quite a few T-bars in Ontario and Quebec during the short time they were around in the mid 1960’s to mid 1970’s

    I see sevral lifts were built before the first VonRoll gondola. how did that work? Skimaps doesn’t have a map old enough to show it.

      There was also a Poma built in 1960 and their first lift was built in 1954.

        Here is an description of the original 1954 lift from a 2009 article “The lift was an original Poma, with the mechanical release pulled by an attendant. Tripods supported the pulley and cable as one ascended to the top unload, which is the present flat spot where Lookout, Larch and Marmot diverge. This is about 100 metres below the present quad top.”

          The article refers to Larch area at Lake Louise.
