Heron (Or Heron-Poma) was one of the most well-known US manufacturers of ski lifts, which got it's beginnings during the battle of Riva Ridge during World War II, when the 10th Mountain Division used a Heron-built ropeway to move supplies. It operated until the mid-1970s, selling to Poma following Bob Heron's retirement. They installed lifts across the United States, and while several remain in the west, there are only two remaining Heron lifts in service in the Eastern US. Where were these lifts installed and what are their names?

Note: This only applies to lifts built on Heron designs. Some of the lifts sold under the Heron-Poma name used Poma designs, these do not count.

Have fun!

Yep! Cool lift, Killington seems to take good care of it.
Hint: Both are located in New England
