About the Bretton Woods B-Lift Ski Chair!

The two-person fixed-grip chairlift was originally manufactured by Heron Poma in 1973 and installed that same year at the Bretton Woods Ski Area. For nearly 45 years, the B-Lift gave skiers and eventually snowboarders access to trails partway up the summit, most notably as a streamline to the race course and terrain park features. Originally yellow with a green flip-up seat, it’s tallest tower reached 51 feet as the 125 HP electric motor churned out smile after smile. In 2018, the beloved lift was retired to make way for the Bretton Woods Skyway Gondola.
