When Blackline Was Liftline

Filed Under (History Updates, Mountain Snapshots) by admin on 30-10-2010

Harley was kind enough to provide us with this shot from the top of the Blue Chair (Now Black) in 1983.  At first glance it looks much as it does today, then you start to notice some of the differences.

The lift towers look the same but there are blue double chairs hanging from the line.  In 1986 the original lift was upgraded with black triple chairs.   That year also saw the mid-station vanish.

Another cool feature are the low trees on skiers right of Blackline.  Low trees mixed in with the scattered rock bands sure must have made for fun terrain.

Notice that the back lot was plowed down to the dirt, no longer a necessity in the age of 4WD and traction control.

Come help fill that lot this year and check out the view in person.  If you haven’t seen it since 1983, come see how little has changed.
