Thought I'd pass this press-release along. Note that it calls them "four-person" chairs, which isn't my memory of any Temple lift ....


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Richard Ober
May 31, 2005 (603) 357-0600

SALE OF TEMPLE MOUNTAIN CHAIRLIFT SEATS
WILL BENEFIT LAND CONSERVATION

(TEMPLE) – Monadnock Region residents who enjoyed skiing at Temple Mountain can now own a piece of the former ski area and support local conservation efforts at the same time. How? By purchasing one of the chairlift seats from the main lift at the mountain. The four-person wooden slat chairs can be used for porch and tree swings or mounted as benches.
Proceeds from the sales will support the Monadnock Conservancy in its land conservation work, including its efforts to establish a conservation area on and around Temple Mountain. Chairs will sell for $100 onsite or $150 delivered within a 10-mile radius of Temple Mountain.
Temple Mountain Ski Area closed for good in 2001. The 352-acre property has been owned since 2004 by John and Connie Kieley of Temple, who were original members of a local citizens’ group called “Friends of Temple Mountain.” (John Kieley is also a member of the Monadncock Conservancy Board of Trustees.) The goal of the “Friends” group was to protect the mountain’s wildlife, scenic views, and backcountry recreation when it became clear that there were no viable developers interested in reopening the ski area. Town officials in Sharon, Peterborough, and Temple supported those goals during meetings with the “Friends” group in 2003, and several conservation organizations have also been actively involved.
Chairs will be available at Temple Mountain starting Sunday, June 5, as part of the Monadnock Milers annual 10-mile road race, and on Saturday, June 11, from 9 a.m. to noon. A pick-up truck or van will be needed to transport a chair. The Monadnock Milers race runs from Wilton to the summit of Pack Monadnock, with closing ceremonies at the base of Temple Mountain. Details on the race are available at www.coolrunning.com. The Monadnock Conservancy will have information available at the closing ceremonies.
For further information, including scheduling delivery of a chair within 10 miles of Temple Mountain, please call 357-0600 or send an email to info@MonadnockConservancy.org.
The Monadnock Conservancy is a non-profit land conservation organization that serves 35 towns in southwestern New Hampshire. Its mission is to identify, promote, and actively seek protection of significant natural, aesthetic, and historic resources in the Monadnock Region; and to monitor and enforce the protection of lands in the trust.

my error - there was a quad! How quickly memories fade ...

For the curious, a quick chat with the press-release people confirm that yes, it does include the pole (or whatever the term is for the thing that goes up and hooks over the cable) and the safety bar. No seat pad. "A little paint is needed" he said, in what is surely a wild understatement.

Did those chairs ever have seat pads, or just the wood slats?

It's nice to see organizations realize there are lost ski area fans who appreciate being alerted to sales like this.

I figured Nashoba would upgrade the chairs when it puts the quad in.

The quad in theory is going on the backside of Nashoba. There's about a 180-200' drop there though its not steep.

whoa, i wasn't aware the chairs were not part of the sale to nashoba. i wish i had some place to put a quad chair, doubles seem easier to store and/or display. don't forget folks, these are center poles!!
