About the lift:
Our lift is a Poma EC-15 platter-pull surface lift. It can haul 10 people at a time, and it takes about 2 1/2 minutes to get to the top.
It is inspected twice a year by the State of Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board, and the wire rope is inspected every year by Bill and Laura Alsup of Silverton, Colorado (thank you!). We comply with all of the same regulations as the large resorts.
This lift was moved from Arapahoe Basin and installed in Lake City in 1966. The Lake City Ski Hill was originally called "Lake City Winter Wonderland." Our lift is the oldest operating lift in Colorado, and typical of the first commercial lifts used in the United States after World War II.
