Here's a picture of the current chair lift at the Snowbowl. It has a large, covered seat, a safety bar, and foot rests.
|I have no idea who these people are. Nice smiles, though!|
Here's a picture of one of the chairlift seats we rode on when I was a kid. It hangs as decoration above the sign for the Ski Lift Lodge at the base of the mountain, but it's the real thing. Not much to it, is there?
We asked ourselves, what kind of mother would let her children, ages 11, 10, 8, and 6, ride on a thing like that? We answered ourselves, a mother who trusts that her children are smart enough to know how to behave safely and respectfully on a chair lift!
