I'm in the helmet, Kim is in the cream jacket. :) The run behind us is called Big Chief and it is so much fun! At this photo angle it looks harmless, but from the road or the parking lot it looks treacherous.
Check out this 2-seater chair lift. Kind of scary if you ask me. It reminds me of a coffee ad I saw on the back of an ancient National Geographic magazine. In bad weather, this would be a very scary chair to ride in my opinion. I was just browsing some ski hills in Switzerland and one of them boasts heated chair lifts that seat six or even EIGHT. The seat padding is heated and when you bring the bar down in front of you, you also pull down a protective plastic dome that keeps you nice and sheltered. It must be pretty cold there if they invest in chair lifts like those!
We were feeling silly and weren't actually quite this scared. At least it was a two seater. Check out this one seater from the cover of a 1937 Life magazine. Here's a neat summer photo of a one seater chair lift in Banff, AB. Here's another angle. That just looks really freaky.
