Noisiest Ski Lift
What do you think is the noisiest lift? I'd nominate the t-bar at Veterans' Memorial; between the old Hall Ts, Heron towers and bullwheels, and the desiel engine it's one loud lift!!! It's also a very fun lift to ride!The Hall t-bar wins the gold medal for noisiest ski lift! How else can you possibly be entertained so audibly on the way up, aside from speakers placed on lift towers! You can even hear the roar from the giant reducing gear in the base station as you ride up the track. Then you've got that lyrical SHPROINNNNNGGGG every time your skis hit a dip in the track and when the T passes through a sheave assembly. Finally, at the summit, you have that CLACKCLACKCLACKCLACK from the old-skool safety brake on the summit bullwheel!
No idea about why the ladder was parked on the tree. Maybe tower maintenance needed to be performed and they were too lazy to put the ladder away?
