I recently hiked around the abandoned ski area Sunrise Hill in North Attleborough. It has an old j-bar that may have been installed used in the early 70's. Right now I do not have any ideas as to who the manufacturer was.

Any ideas on who the manufacturer was? Even if you don't know for sure, feel free to mention some ideas and I'll try to verify. Thanks in advance for any help!

My guess would be Hopkins or Sneller

I did more research today and am starting to suspect Larchmont. Though they don't make lifts or snowmaking systems anymore, I think they are still in business!
Confirmed Larchmont that looks similar: http://www.nelsap.org/ma/sweatt.html
Likely company website: https://larchmont-eng.com/about/

Almost unmistakably a Larchmont now that I see other photos. We will be working on a manufacturer profile on Remontees-Mecaniques and after that I will publish the Sunrise Hill J-Bar report!

You're right it's a Larchmont my bad!
They are still in business I've tried to see if they had more information on their lifts from back in the day but it sounds like they don't
