Here is a little bit of A-Basin Ski History. The first US company to be a distributor for Poma or platter lifts was owned by Larry Jump, The Basin's founder and first president. The first Poma lift to be installed in the US was at A-Basin. While this era precedes me, it is my understanding there were at least five different Poma platter Lifts at Arapahoe Basin. Attached are a couple of photos of the old Poma Line below North Glade.
