    G'day

    I thought I'd ask if anybody knows the exact location of where the chairlift started and ended, and the path it took. I'm interested in the history of the resort, and thought that if I'm there in summer again, I might try and hike out there.

    Any information would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    Go to Google Earth and you'll see the line of the chairlift running through the trees at an approximate bearing of 315 degrees from the Rangers Station (which was the old terminal) at 36 28 29.47S and 148 21 46.65E. The chairlift then ran to the top of Mount Stillwell 36 26 40.37S and 148 19 26.72E and then turned to a bearing of approximately 35 degrees to end just above Charlotte Pass village - I think the top station was around 36 26 10.83S and 148 19 45.34E.
