House cleaning has been catching wind in the ski resort industry as of late, as it appears to be the go-to activity to kill time before snow falls yet again. Okay, maybe they have stuff to do like actually plan budgets and hire staff, but who knows? Either way, lots of ski resorts seem to be getting rid of some of their out-dated equipment, particularly old chair lifts. Recently, Ski Butternut began selling various antique ski chairs at their Massachusetts resort for $200 a piece. Now, another major ski resort has jumped in on the action as they begin to unload some chairs of their own.

The Canyons ski area in Utah is now selling double chairs from its Golden Eagle chairlift tomorrow in the resort’s Cabriolet parking lot from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The price is a steal at $100, and is cash and carry with purchasers limited to only one chair each.

All remaining chairs after Wednesday’s sale will be handed out to Canyons Guides on a lottery basis.
