    Cool!  Ski Brule is usually first to open in Michigan.

    They also have a Doppelmayr t-bar on the other side of their hill!

    Regarding the Hall t-bar, is theirs one of the inverted ones with the drive terminal at the summit versus the base?

    Only thing that would've made this lift corridor more perfecter would've been a Mueller t-bar alongside the other three!

    Shoot, throw in a classic pomalift as well and voila!

    I have some great memories skiing here in college. I remember driving down from Marquette for their first day open not realizing I had crossed from eastern time back into central and having to wait for an hour even though the ski area was only 30 minutes away. Very cool and rare hall center pole double on the back side as well.

    Ah, that makes sense now; you can see the T-bar base terminal building and I think the haul rope, but no carriers or towers.

    Would these be the rare center pole Hall chairs?
