Plake, Dumont, Hall, McConkey Fill Us In: What’s Your Favorite Chairlift?

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on June 26, 2009 12:13 pm


What is your favorite chairlift?  Perhaps it’s difficult to narrow it down to one, but any mountain addict has strong opinions on these beautiful hunks of cable and steel.  Why?  Because chairlifts hold special memories of time and place, and even if a chairlift can’t love you in return, it does not stop us from loving them.  The Ski Channel asked a cornucopia of ski and snowboard stars to name their favorite chairlift.  We even took a tour with Shane McConkey aboard “the mothership”, aka KT-22 at Squaw Valley (video below).  

Now that Tanner Hall, JP Auclair, Sammy Carlson, Bobby Brown, Scot Schmidt, Jeremy Jones, JJ Thomas, Nick Martini, Mike Douglas, Casey Puckett, Chris Davenport, Gretchen Bleiler, Simon Dumont, Lynsey Dyer and Glen Plake have had their say, it’s time for you to wax poetic.  What is YOUR favorite chairlift and why?
