The Black Mountain Express will be the first lift in the United States with the Leitner Poma product called "Kid Stop." They have been used successfully in Europe and Canada. The Kid Stop rests on a person's thighs and provides a slightly snugger fit on the chairlift. It does bend upward to accommodate larger people. At no point is a there an awkward or tight fit. It is designed to help kids and parents feel a little more comfortable while riding the lift. Since the lift is only 3 minutes long we chose to exclude foot rests.
