    This lift is a bit of a frankenlift. It was originally the Valley Triple at Whiteface, which was installed in 1988. It replaced the Valley Double which was one side of a double-double. CTEC relocated the drive to the top and replaced the chairs, but used the original Hall line gear. The return was custom built to fit the original Hall structure.

    This lift uses new crossarms, line gear, and safety bars. The drive, return, and chairs came from Whiteface. The tower tubes are a combination of Hall and Riblet and I believe are off of the North Double and Straightbrook Double. There could also be some from the upper section of the Valley Double/Triple, assuming that Hall didn’t use tandem towers on the upper section with only one side installed.
