T-Bar – Mont Chilly, QC

This homemade T-Bar services a steep, natural snow ski area.
The first tower used to be a center tube style but it was changed to a portal.
View up at tower 3.
Lower part of the line.
Half tower 5.
Note the tower no longer in use.
Upper part of the line.

Side view of the top tension return.
Another view of the summit bullwheel structure.
At one point an inspector required operators to be able to see the entire steep lift line. Rather than hire a third operator to staff the middle of the lift, the owner put the lift shack 30 feet up so the top operator could see the entire line.
