Lift 13: A Long Lift Through the Trees

Model: 4-Person
Track: 237' at 20 °
Year: 2007


Although this lift rises 80 feet from the lake to a hilltop through a mature forest, we were able to find an ideal line. 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. Amazingly, only one mature tree had to come down.

At times, on this lift, you ride as high as 15 feet off the ground, quite literally in the trees and with the lake in the background.

When I asked the owner how the lift changed their cottage lift I loved his succinct answer: "We spent last summer at the water."
