KEYSTONE, Colo. (CBS4) – Arapahoe Basin Ski Area and the Leitner-Pomo lift company worked together to removed the Norway Lift towers by helicopter.
The lift, built in 1978, shuttled skiers and snowboarders from mid-mountain up to the summit for the last four decades.
The metal from the towers will be recycled, and the chairs were sold. The ski area then donated more than $18,000 from the sales to more than a dozen charities in the area.
A-Basin plans on installing a four-person chairlift at its new terrain, The Beavers. That is expected to be complete in October.
