The $2.2 million fixed grip chairlift is the third Poma brand to serve the North Ridge/Glades complex. Originally featuring a Pomalift in 1959, the complex had been served by a Heron-Poma triple chairlift since 1972. The new lift follows the line of the triple, climbing some 587 feet over a run of 2,270 feet.
