Single Chair, Fayston – TJ Greenwood

The Single Chair Lift at Mad River Glen:
2009 PTV Award Winner

Mad River Glen’s Single Chair is more than a chair lift; it is an engineering marvel reflective of the imaginative innovators that changed the face of the American ski industry when the lift first opened in 1948. In December 2007, the lift reopened following a total rehabilitation made possible by a successful capital campaign that raised over $1.7 million in donations from more than 1,500 individuals. The dedication ceremony recreated Mad River Glen’s opening day in 1948, complete with Miss Vermont 1948 Jean Peatman on hand to help Miss Vermont 2007 Rachel Ann Cole ceremonially “unlock” the restored Single Chair.
