If you have pictures to contribute I would be happy to use them on the site for the New York section. I handle that section of the gallery so any help that you may be able to provide would be welcome. I would get over there and ski some places, but it's a bit of a haul for me from NH to NY. If you do send me any pictures be kind of patient as I have other things in line to get posted to the site before getting to anything new, as well as school full time and a part time job. Although I'm planning a New York excursion sometime this summer that I hope to visit some ski areas to start and get the pages going with.
Chairlift n. A transportation system found at most ski areas in which a series of chairs suspended from a cable rapidly conveys anywhere from one to eight skiers from the front of one line to the back of another.

Ski Fast Ski Hard, do you think you could post reduced sizes of your images?

We can't afford to have people posting 2 mb pictures. Anything under 200 KB is great.

Thanks

I actually do have pictures of the grips on the Adirondack Express (If you are using internet explorer, wait for the picture to fully load so it minimizes a little, that is the clearest image of the grip)

It's a little blury because I had a picture of some chairs on the haul rope and I zoomed in on one of the chairs in photoshop then sharpened the image which didn't really work.

I'm not sure but the Quicksilver lift itself is manufactured by Poma so I'm not sure whether the chairs are the same or not

Yeah looking at that picture again of the grip it looks different than what I thought. I havent seen too many von roll lifts so I mistook it for a doppelmayer. Looking closer it looks like half of the grip assembly that is used on the River Run gondola at Keystone. Does anyone know the model numbers for Von Roll grips or have detailed pictures of them?

I might have a more detailed picture of the grips but I am not sure.
