    Good on ya to H-Man for the thread. Lift pics are the shit, because, letís face itÖ We donít stop to set up and shoot in the middle of a great pow run. Well maybe Splat does, but heís 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.

    Hereís some of my favorite Mammy lift pics from the last few seasons:

    that was a cool little pow day



    edit... forgot a photo of gaper wiping out in the pow that morn. heheh



    hereís the place that will make ya smile.

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

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

    Did you spend anytime on that ridge in the background?

    A few more of my personal favourites...


    Grands Montets tram, Argentiere


    Pic Blanc tram, Alpe d'Huez


    Summit Six chair, Alpine Meadows


    Siberia Chair, Squaw Valley (helllo Palisades)


    Thunder Chair, Jackson (just visible above Tower 3 Chute there)


    The Sarenne chairlift, Alpe d'Huez (it's going under the end of the resort's altiport runway and about to drop into the Sarenne Gorge. Very dramatic ride.)


    Casse de Bouef in Serre Chevalier. Lots of fun to be found here.

    Well, it looks to me as if the chair that goes straight across the picture has been badly airbrushed out.

    It looks to me like the chair cuts across the sky area right above the skier. To me it looks like whoever retouched the photo tried to clone out the lift, but didn't do a very good job.

    Did you need a belay for that first tee? Or was it farther down that you had to rope up?

    Negative, but goofy attire was encouraged.

    Oh, ok. Then that totally explains why that guy has a carabiner clipped to his backpack.

    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.
    Fresh Tracks are the ultimate graffitti.
