BROMLEY, VT

SUN MOUNTAIN (DOPPELMAYR) - This HS quad replaced the original #1 Riblet double


SUN CHAIR (HALL) - This chair is the older half of a Hall double-double chair installed in 1974. When installed only this half
was completed with the right side reserved for future capacity. This chair on lookers left originally terminated the summit and featured
a 3/4 unload station. The towers above the 3/4 station were typical hall towers (not double/double). In 1998 the chair was shortened to
terminate at the 3/4 station which permits most of the mountain to open on days when the summit lifts go on wind hold.


ALPINE CHAIR (VON ROLL/HALL) - The second half of the double/double was added in 1984. At this time Hall had benn purchased bu Von Roll so even
though the parts are Hall, the lift manufacturer is listed as Von Roll-Habegger). This lift terminates half way up the mountain and serves the
alpine slide in the summer.


PLAZA DOUBLE (RIBLET) - A classic Riblet built in 1965. This lift originally had center pole chairs. The new chairs were hung
around 1997, they may have come from Okemo's old Summit double.


BLUE RIBBON (POMA) - This Poma quad was added in 1988 to serve the the east side terrain. For a few years
it ran alongside the Stargazer double (Riblet) which was occasionally run when lines formed at Blue Ribbon. As it
was not needed The Stargazer was eventually removed leaving Blue Ribbon serving the East Side terrain.


EAST MEADOW DOUBLE (HALL) - The East Meadow Double was built 1974 to be a double double, however the second
side was never built. The chair is pictured with several modified chairs designed to carry Devil Carts in summer.


LORD'S PRAYER T-BAR (HALL) - This T-bar was purchased used and installed in 1997 to replace the Lord's Prayer J-bar.


FORMER LIFTS

NUMBER ONE - A Riblet double built in 1958 which ran base to summit. It was removed in 1997 and replaced
by the Sun Mountain Express quad. Original owner Fred Pabst prefered J-Bar's but admitted his "skiers prefered
the double." We currently have one of the chairs from this lift in our collection pictured below. The chair was originaly
equiped with footrests that would swing around automatically when the safty bar was lowered. The bars on the chairs
were later modified with conventional footrests and new bar counter weights.


LORD'S PRAYER J-BAR - The Lord's Prayer J-bar served the Lord's Prayer J-bar served the Lord's Prayer area until it was replaced by a used Hall T- Bar. The last picture shows the J-Bar being removed.


STARGAZER DOUBLE (RIBLET) - Built in 1965 and removed in the mid-1990's this lift serviced the east side terrain.
On this chair in 1987 the Chairlift Preservation Society began. The picture shows all that remained of this chair as of
2001. This chair was rendered unnecessary a few years after the Blue Ribbon quad was installed next to it.
