Can anyone identify this lift? it's a triple at Mountain Creek, NJ. From what i understand, it was installed in the early 80's. If you can't tell in the picture, the chairs have horizontal wodden slats.

Maybe a partek due to the square tube construction with either thiokol or hall chairs

Thiokol chairs don't have wooden slats, unless they modified them.

The sheaves remind me of Thiokol, but Allan is right, wooden slats on a Thiokol chair... I have yet to see that.

Okay. i found it. It is most certainly a borvig. Notice the similarity between it and this double at suicide six (from chairlift.org)

There seems to be very few borvig triples out there, and even fewer with this type of terminal

Also, prior to 1998, i think Mountain Creek had only borvig chairs (13 of them).
