    Sorry if this has been asked and answered previously but I couldn't find any existing posts about it...

    Does anyone know what lift, specifically, this old relic belongs to? I assume it's from an old lift, not really sure looking at it again now.

    It's at the top of the hill between the chair and the Pulpit t-bar.

    That's the top station of the old poma lift that went from the bottom of the current baby poma. You can find pics of it in 'Skiing Off the Roof'.

    For some reason, doesn't matter if I'm coming from the chair or the t-bar I always end up carrying / pushing / pulling my daughter past that!! Shakes head!

    Pre-war - pretty certain 1938. First lift built at Charlotte Pass.
