  • Thanks for sharing Tom, just posted on our Facebook page. This was a classic lift. I last rode it probably 25 years ago. It has barely run at all in the last few years.
  • I wonder how many 50 year old Halls are still operating.

    I can think of two double chairs almost as old as me at Labrador as well as a Hall t-bar there nearly 60 years old.

    I believe the Madonna chair at Smuggs is 50 years old.
  • The west double at CM was installed as a Hall in 1969. While the towers and bullwheels are still original Hall, I think the drive has been replaced making it a Hall/CTEC/Doppelmayr hybrid.
  • Ok then I wonder how many Halls are running on original drives 50 yrs old
  • There are three original Hall doubles at Bolton Valley, and three also at Smuggs over 50. East basin chair at Loon turns 50 this fall, but it's been updated.

    There are many and I doubt we can list them all. We could probably find all the ones in New England.

  • Iirc skilifts said Hall built over 600 lifts. I'm betting a minimum of over half are still spinning
  • I took these a few years ago, probably February 2002. It was super cold that day
