Today I made the trip to a lost resort a half hour away. It is located outside of lambertville on the Delaware river. The resort has 190' feet of vertical and has two rope tows, one pony lift, and one Hall double chair. First pic is off the mountain as viewed from the road.

Back to the Beginner Lifts, the handle of the Pony Tow. The lift was made by WSO, anyone know this brand.

It opened in 1960 and closed quite recently in 1998. The reason for its closure was a disasterous snowfall here in Nj, and by disasterous snowfall I mean there wasn't any.

Was Stadeli bought by Doppelmayr because it looks like I see a lot of Stadeli parts used on Doppelmayr's lifts these days and vise versa. Now I know who built the lifts at Soldier Mountain, Idaho.
