It’s weird but it happens, you can actually fall deeply hopelessly in love with a chairlift.
You adore every dip in the rope, creak of the bullwheel, ratty sticker adorning the towers, until poof like magic you step off and access your dreamscape. There’s no deeper relationship between machinery and man than a chairlift and a skier.
The folks at Big Sky understand that vibe and hired out a professional production team to honor Lone Peak Tram 25th anniversay with a ten minute video to tell her story.
Next season Big Sky is replacing the quaint 15 person tram with one that can accommodate 75 people. Time will tell if the new upgraded tram becomes as beloved as the original.
