Just completed photo compilations of all ten Boyne Mountain chairlifts. I did a lot of research into the years and manufacturers, but let me know if anyone has different information.

Alpine: 2002 used Doppelmayr originally installed in 1970 in Alpine Ski Club in Ontario
Boynelands: 1995 Borvig with Riblet chairs. Originally Superbowl chair installed in 1982.
Disciples II: 1998 Riblet, used, history at multiple locations
Disciples Ridge: 1996, built by Superior Tramway Company\
Hemlock: 1948 as single, converted to double in 1951 and later modernized by Riblet. Originally world's first chairlift at Sun Valley.

I would not call it a modernized lift. It has been built up from the scratch but Riblet reused the old terminals (from one of the two first chairlifts).

Was the Alpine double at Boyne originally Alpine Ski Club's Summit Double?
