    This lift was originally the Arrowhead lift at Shawnee. It was first built in 1975 as a double chair, one of the mountain’s original lifts. In 1988, it was converted to a triple by replacing the drive, chairs, and tower heads. I believe the return structure was also new, but reused the old bullwheel. In 2010, it was replaced by a Partek Quad that was originally on the Tomahawk slope and was replaced by a detachable. It was relocated here in 2011.
