Poma History

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.

Hey, Al, my family and I will be in the area this week and are looking forward to a hike of the basin one day. You've posted pics of and discussed seeing wildlife quite a bit. I'm curious as to where the best wildlife viewing potential is. Do you see more on the Argentine North Fork trail below mid-mountain, or is most of it up high or in Montezuma bowl? Thanks!
