    poking around and I thought I'd bump this one up from the depths
    For sure, you have to be lost to find a place that can't be found, elseways everyone would know where it was

    I fell in love with the trees on the back of the lake. mmmmm tasty face-shots 5 days after a storm, even during peak holiday season in bluebird skies.



    The lift tops out on the ridge to the right of the summit. I have soooooo many good memories of that bootpack and wolverine cirque. Now let me wipe away the drool.

    Didn't see one of my personal favorites on here. Lincoln, Chair 22 Mammoth. All sorts of fun on a stormy day or any day for that matter.

    A deep day last year...stoked

    Seventh Heaven on Blackcomb in July. Can't forget the mini sound-system in the backpack for lift parties!

    Believe.

    Exactly the wrong side of world. Rugby tow at Broken River (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 and here, 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.

    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.

    Main tow at Temple Basin.

    Whats real fun is digging it out the day after a storm - especially before there's a platform dug at the top.

    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 )

    *EDIT: Why don't the pics show up in the thread, I'm an attachment jong
