    I got some pics from when I worked at Wilmot. Some of the removed lifts and some of the new lifts being installed. I can send them to you if you want.

    Also idk why you list the removed lifts with “Nicknames” such as: “2 Fanny Hill, 3 Old Faithful, 6 Inspiration, 8 Exhibition.” Fanny (Upper & Lower) Inspiration & Exhibition are runs those lifts serviced. I worked in the maintenance shop as a snowmaker and groomer. The lift mechanics were in the same shop, we only called the lifts as “Chair 1, 2, 3, ex…” They never had nicknames.

      My family has been skiing Wilmot since the 60’s and many of the chairs have had nicknames going back many years.

      All the lift names he has listed here were the names at one point for each of those lifts. Many of them had painted signs near the corrals with the name of each lift. In addition to the names listed, Chair 4 used to be called Sundance.

      In fact, this old trail map from 2011 shows the old layout with all the lifts (including Bunny Heaven not having a ton of wasted vert) and each of the 8 lifts has a nickname.

      Funnily enough, I’m a die hard Chair 5 fan and even I didn’t remember it being called Snow Bowl, my dad and I tend to lap that chair most days and we’ve ALWAYS called it Chair 5.
