Ski Lifts, sometimes known as the stairway to heaven. In salute to recent actions and subsequent postings, how about a little Blue Tram Car stoke.

Lifted from the web... there's a lift in this picture, barely visible, called "Supreme." Aptly named, IMHO.

call me a JONG but I've had some of the best turns of my life under this chair. No shit. Also one of the worst runs too. This particular pitch shown here has been known to eat man or beast alive and spit them out broken ribs and all. 30 degrees of off fall line, cut up spuds... I never ever ski this pitch...

Nice stoke of the week!

Good on ya to H-Man for the thread. Lift pics are the shit, because, let’s face it… We don’t stop to set up and shoot in the middle of a great pow run. Well maybe Splat does, but he’s old as fuck and has has to pimp the photos for pass money (wink, oldster)

I usually whip out my little digi (hanging curve) and get a few shots in on the lift to try and remember the day. I love Mammy and wish I could be back there at the end of the season. Some of the late season pics that have come up recently are painful to look at.

Here’s some of my favorite Mammy lift pics from the last few seasons:

The people in the photo don't exactly look like they're tearing it up! Is one of them you, tibaher? :p

This picture was taken on November 30th, 2003. It was my first day of the season. As I recall conditions were not great!

Yep, it's true. Bretton Woods now owns the Cog and 60yards +/- on each side of the tracks. They are grooming it and opening it to skiers this coming winter. They had a test/ media event this winter that some local North Conway reporterrs I know whent on. It was raining but they said it was still fun/different. Go to Bretton Woods web site for more info I bet.

I swear to god Seth Morrison pointed me to my line from the lift in a white out. I didn't realise it was him till later...

I was scared shitless going up there. Mad wind, sketchy chairs and Argentinos digging it out constantly all day.

From a Chilean travel review on http://observer.guardian.co.uk/

SlingShot Lifts

They are the stuff of skiers' nightmares, stopping even the most proficient in their tracks and leaving anyone still coming to terms with the sport quaking in their ski boots. Known as slingshot lifts, they cause a line of jaws to drop open on the slopes as white-faced skiers get a first glimpse of the terrifying sight.

We are talking about the grand-daddy of all button lifts - five in a row zipping up the impossible-looking gradient at an incredible speed. Think 18 miles an hour on a 35 degree angle - for many skiers, including myself, a challenging set of statistics just going downhill. But uphill!


'It's like flying,' says my ski instructor. 'Or waterskiing uphill. Nothing scary about it.'

I watch an experienced snowboarder wipe out going up the slope while the other four people on the lift seem to be having their arms wrenched out of their sockets in the effort to hold on.

He finally gets the nerve to go on the lift:

I stick with the mountain theme, heading off with a Swiss teacher, Heidi. Together, we face my bete noir. Within minutes of me asking whether she thinks I am capable of it, I find myself on the Condor slingshot lift, holding on for grim death, feeling an amazing surge of adrenaline course through my body as we fly up the hill. At the top, I wait obediently as we slip down the slope slightly before let ting go of the lift, one by one, carefully, so as not to upset the balance too much.

A huge grin breaks out on my face. It doesn't matter that there's still so much adrenaline in my body that I wipe out on the descent. Or that any future forays are cut short when Heidi points to the rock face behind the lift down which snow is flowing and tumbling; not a life-threatening avalanche, but enough for the guides to blow their warning whistles. I have survived the slingshot lift. What's more, I've got a taste for powder and skiing in Chile that's going to see me back on the plane next year.

Anyone been on one of these? :eek: Pics?

Exactly the wrong side of world. Rugby tow at Broken River (http://www.brokenriver.co.nz/images/trail_large.jpg) (to the right of the Palmer day lodge). The lift is a nutcracker, a high speed rope tow which you hold on to with a clamp so the pulleys don't break your hand. The black thing on the left is the guys hand, he was holding the camera with one hand next to his hip. How to ride a nutcracker (http://www.chillout.co.nz/mountains/nutcracker/default.asp) and here (http://www.invincible.co.nz/tow.htm), expert skiers who are good on T bars and platters will still take several attempts before being able to get all the way up to the top the first time they use this type of lift. But these lifts are the reason there are no stupid gapers at these mountains. The busiest day I have ever seen at Craigieburn there were about 50 people, and to get from the car park to the lifts at BR there is a 1/2 hour hike. These places are the anti-Deer Valley of ski areas.

Ski Lifts, sometimes known as the stairway to heaven.

Really cool thread topic and pictures! :)

But please don’t confuse a chairlift with a “stairway to heaven”.
Stairway implies walking and sitting on a chairlift is anything but.

Magic carpet ride is more appropriate. ;)

I'm disappointed no one has mentioned one of my all-time favorites. Another lift from this same mountain has mentioned, but not this little beauty? I only enjoyed a handful of rides on this lovely gondola due to its recent retirement (and my only being 18, started riding it at age 6), but they were all entertaining. The cinder blocks to help prevent blowing in the wind, and at 6 years old I found it entertaining to watch the lift attendant push us to the end of the station and tug the rope...kind of like the car wash. Unfortunately I don't have my own pictures of it but these will have to do. Also included is the gondola from Ischgl, which, being from the East Coast...I was very impressed with (that, and the rest of their modern lifts...not so modern lines :the_finge )

Ha!

The Easter Egg gondola! So many memories in that thing. The craziest was when we rode one that literally had a hole in the floor about the size of a cantalope. You could get your boot through it if you wanted to. I remember riding it as a little kid with my dad, bro in law, and uncle and the four of us barely fitting. There are a few kicking around N Conway:

The Marte Lift, Las Lenas Early Sept 2001. They said it snowed 9 meters the night before we showed up. The resort was closed for about 10 days prior do to the storm. They had to dig out the lift at the top bowl! We needed a snorkel all week. Ignore the dates on the pics they are wrong. You can see the bottom half of the lift behind us in the last pic, it puts it into perspective.

Craigieburn was my first experience with a nutcracker when I went to NZ, and its one hell of a ride. Had no problems with it but man its scary as to be whipping by the pulleys with your fingers inches away

This was the first day the lift was open last year.
Many huge grins at the bottom that morning.

Bunny hill lift at Sundown. Not the most stellar lift there but I really like the mid-western sunset.

A little more steepness can be found under the Pali at A-Basin

Nostalgia = Old P-dog chair at the Bird late 70's to mid 80's, pre brutal grooming, (they winch silverfox now ferchrissakes). It was almost an event unto itself while the rest fought for pow--bump skier ruled on Peruvian. Stu O'Brien (RIP buddy), Jonjo and Christy too, Dean the Machine J-Dog (how many patrollers ski bumps all day on days off?), GE Joe and Cubby, (aka superchunk), The Wilson girls from the Steakpit, Jen was often with Greta("Liners" is keeping Stu company) later on a teenage chick named Ulmer showed up and willed herself into a world class bump skier...Rick Shaner, Mikey Grey, Timmy the bump fag. Alison Brown...

...the list goes on the chair is gone and who hung the rubber chicken from tower 4 every time there was a bump contest?

It will be a sad day if the master development plan ever gets the funding it needs. It may improve flow, but fuck is this building nostalgic

Chair 17 at Vail last year.

https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/179011_868984057045_47271_n.jpg

I love that chair and will miss it when Vail trashes it for an unnecessary high speed quad.

That was such an insane lift:
http://www.trincerone.com/archive/alagna/cresta-rossa/cresta-rossa-alt.jpg

The old guy that ran it had hands that looked like wood burls. It creaked and moaned as you rode it. An looking up at the icefalls above you one the traverse (The Balma?): they don't make skiing like that anywhere but Yurp.

not an engineering marvel or spectacular. However the Mt Eyak chair in the winter of 2011-2012 needs a place here.

Ah yes Skyline lift at Vail. My buddy has a pic of this too but his includes about 100 people in line with their phone out taking pictures of this guy. I heard Vail hooked him up for his troubles...

Or maybe he just sued their pants off for a nice chunk of change
