    Yes it is a center pole Riblet quad Ibrake4tbars, next to a Tbar your favorite.

    Hint, '77 install

    Now to confuse things here's another lift

    Extra credit if you guess both lifts by name

    Is this at the same area?

    I would not have guessed there was a t-bar in the top two pics. It's hidden in the trees? If it's a 77 install there's a chance it's a Hall install.

    Now I'm confused: I thought you said there was a a t-bar in the pic.....or did you mean that, next to t-bars, centre-pole quads are my favourite lifts?

    Hmm. Lesse now: a triple with hanging sheaves a la Borvig and towers that look like Roeblings. I'm taking a stab in the dark and say it's a Partek.

    Yes alas my friend it is Borvig according to skilifts.org

    And excuuuse me, the cpq is a '73 install and not '77

    Now name first of all the ski area, then the specific name of the first early morning pic( trail(s) which coincidentally coincides with the lift name)

    Then name the Borvig lift( beginner lift free of charge)

    I have multiple additional pics of this historic, innovative, aggressive area to add this evening once solved

    Those chairs look like Riblets, but with Borving grips. Everything else looks Borving.

    That is a Riblet double chair with bail style chairs. The grip inserted into the cable gives it away.

    Riblet chairs are my favourite aerial ride up a mountain next to classic lattice chairs. Because the grip is inserted into the cable the ride up is extremely smooth. No slight bumping when passing over a tower.

    Stumped at which area you're at. Was going to say Nubs Nob but I don't see that Poma chairlift with the floating bullwheel.

    OK the first few early morning pictures are Super Bowl at Boyne mountain (fis racing trail)we stayed at the mountain run condos.
    Then The beginner triple chair is a free beginner lift and we stayed at the mountain villas , the lift is called Boyneland. The older lift with the Lattice looking Equipment is the hemlock double which was I believe the very first lift at Boyne . The center pole quad is the Victor above the building.

    I have a full picture report to follow this evening

    Hemlock double. May have been the original Single purchased from Sun Valley and then changed into a double with Heron.imageimageimage

    For being so " wealthy " Boyne sure has a lot of old lifts, 3 center pole quad Riblets, 2 Riblet triples, and 2 center pole doubles ( Dopplemayr ?)all from the '70s era.

    Only the first high speed six pack( Dopp) is from early '90s, with the newest lift being a Conveyor belt high capacity fixed grip quad that is about 10 yrs old that replaced the Meadows quad( the first quad in the world)

    Why? They're well-built, smooth chairs.  I'd ride a Riblet any day.  Sad they never get a detachable grip designed.

    Is the tension terminal left over from the single? That doesn't look like original Riblet construction. It does have many Riblet parts tacked on though.

    They are well built. I just don't like how they decided to be different from everyone else about their grip assembly's. Instead of a clamp they are woven into the haul rope. Makes it difficult to work on.
