Minnesota Ski Hill Set To Retire 50 Year Old Chairlift This Weekend
If you are a fan of skiing and or snowboarding, chances are you've heard of Wild Mountain in Taylors Falls. Wild Mountain made the announcement yesterday on social media that they are getting ready to retire a 50-year-old chairlift this weekend, with the seats going up for sale later on.
Wild Mountain's post from yesterday reads:
Final Weekend for Chair 3 We are bidding farewell to Chair 3 this weekend! It's your last chance to give it a ride!
Chairlift 3 was the first chairlift installed on Wild Mountain, and will be replaced with what Wild Mountain's website says "we will be installing a brand-spanking-new Skytrac 4-person chairlift. The new chairlift will run parallel to Chair 2, and act as a replacement for the current Chair 3 which was the first chairlift built at Wild Mountain in 1972. The new chairlift will become the primary chairlift used for access from the base lodge, but Chair 2 will remain in use for summer operations and high visitation days during the winter. This investment marks the first new chairlift installed at Wild Mountain since Chair 1 was installed in 1983 – 39 years ago."
