Track: 237' at 20 °
Although this lift rises 80 feet from the lake to a hilltop through a mature forest, we were able to find a great line and only one mature tree needed to be removed. At times you ride as high as 15 feet off the ground and within patting distance of one tree, quite literally in the trees. The lift can barely be seen from the water.
The upper station is on a natural hillock and provides good access to the cottage.
The lower station is a step off the forest floor, framed by two established trees, one of which we used to mount the button box.
When I asked the owner how the lift changed their cottage lift I loved his succinct answer:
"We spent last summer at the water."
