Whitecap Mtn Wisconsin "One of the Most bizarre chairlifts in the Western Hemisphere "

edited September 2017 in NELSAP Forum
Wife and I stayed at Whitecap ski area on way back
from a counterclockwise Lk Superior circle tour. We had put a substantial deposit on a trip here and Bohemia last winter and they allowed us to use that. Talk about feeling like your on the Shining. 3 other people staying. We played the golf course which is integrated in the ski hill. Unfortunately the 82 yr old owner can't sell the place for $ 2 million.He was running around on the golf cart working his butt off.The course built in 2001 was in absolutely horrible shape. I think the ski trails were mowed better than the course. Visually it was spectacular looking at the Apostle Islands and Lk Superior and all these trails going hither and yon in all 360 aspects. This place was right out of the '70s stuck in a time warp. So eerie but so retro old school cool. Unless it has a cash infusion the golf course will be lost. The gal said they were separately owned but I don't know how.

Of course I enjoyed looking at the Hall chairlifts which contained according to Skiernet/ Gondyline/ Skibum "one of the most bizarre chairlifts in the Western Hemisphere ".

Look how high this 1971sucker is off the ground with no safety bar, 4300' Hall double with a unloading station.image
