Fun with Chairlift Triva!

Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 20, 2008 12:00 am

Chairlifts are personal, even if their names aren’t. Yes, you can love a number (i.e. chair 23 at Mammoth). We all have our favorites. Different sizes, different features, all special and unique in their own way. For 25 points, what is Catenary? Remember, Googling counts as cheating with Chairlift Trivia. Give up? It’s “the sag in the haul rope between towers.” I started you off with a tough one just to humble all the self-proclaimed chairlift experts out there. How about a Bullwheel? Well, now I’m just insulting your intelligence… Well then, what about Rime? It looks like this. Get smart with the chairlift glossary of terms found at Skilifts.org, a fantastic niche site dedicated to all things chairlift. Pictures of old-school Riblet lifts with that center bar between you and your companion, to Doppelmayr’s sleek new designs, Skilifts.org is a chairlift lover’s fantasy.
