The A-Basin Ski Lift Chair Restoration Project

I was surprised to find that these chairs came from the manufacturer with yellow vinyl seat covers. At some point they were stapled over with black vinyl. I will be replacing the pad and cover with the black operational vinyl.

Getting a true piece of history, I was lucky enough to buy old ski lift chair #23 that spent many decades shuttling skiers and snowboarders on the Lenawee lift at Arapahoe Basin, Colorado! In 2001 the old two person Lenawee lift was taken down in favor of a new higher speed three chair. Over the next few days and weeks I will be restoring her to her former glory with a new coat of paint, new knee board, and all new padding and vinyl cover. When all done, this chair will become our new front porch seat.

How did the swing turn out. we have a chair from the same lift and I keep trying to think of a good way to hang it. Did you build a structure to hand from or build legs under the seat?

I supported it on two 'stumps' of logs and then anchored the top to our porch. It doesn't swing but it does make a nice bench for our front porch.
