Mount Snow Removes Ski Baba Chairlift
The Carinthia novice chairlift will be replaced with a conveyor lift.
Tuesday, June 7, 2016,

The classic Ski Baba chairlift has been removed at Mount Snow, as the Carinthia EB-5 project moves forward.

The 541 foot long lift was the first chairlift installed at Carinthia during its days as an independent ski area. It was also the last surviving independent Carinthia lift installation.

The 1979 Borvig was the last chairlift in Vermont to operate without safety bars, thanks to its low height and grandfathered status.

In its place, a new novice conveyor lift is expected to be installed for the 2016-17 season. Mount Snow is moving forward with its $52 million West Lake and Carinthia EB-5 projects after receiving United States Citizenship and Immigration Services approval last month.
