    It's been done before, but it's worth doing again as we rev up for another winter. What are your favorite lifts to ski?

    My Top 5:
    Peak Express (Whistler)
    Lift 9 (Telluride)
    Little Cloud (Snowbird)
    John Paul Express (Snowbasin)
    Strawberry Gondola (Snowbasin)

    Honorable Mention:
    Loge Peak (Aspen Highlands)
    High Alpine (Snowmass)
    Challenger (Sun Valley)
    Dreamcatcher (Grand Targhee)

    I too love the Pony Express at Steamboat...easily my favorite lift there. No matter how busy Steamboat is, you can always get away from the crowds when riding the Pony.

    T-Ride Chair 9 for sure
    Gad 2 ('Bird)
    Chair 23 (Mammoth, but I sure hope they got that arm rest/bar installed this past summer)
    Highline (Vail, Not only for the blacks/dbl blacks, but for one of the all time greatest green runs- Flap Jack)
    Eagle Wind (Winter Park)
    Sublette (JH)

    Of course, these are not in order of preference. That would be like asking Sophie her choice of favorite child.

    How is the Tram at Jackson on only one list. You people are nuts.

    1. Tram @ Jackson
    2. Tram @ Snowbird
    3. Aspen gondola
    4. Pali
    5. Lift 9 @ Loveland (cause I have to have one from my home mountain.)

    I have a feeling this will be on my list before the end of the year.

    Though I do like to ski uphill or traverse a bit to get to the goods also.
