Poma, Single, Double (x2), Triple, Quad

The Exhibition Trail is under the Black Mountain Express. In the ski area's history, this location has seen six different lifts. The original lift was a single chair (photo below) installed in 1946. In the 1950's and 60's, two double chairlifts and Poma Lift were installed and all in place at once. In the 1978, those three lifts were removed and the Exhibition Triple Chair was installed. In 2010, "Exo" was removed and the Black Mountain Express quad chair was installed. Poma, single, double, triple, quad.

More importantly, how many of the tower footers are removed vs abandoned and left in place.

Wait is that why there were so many freaking lines on exo. Why were 5 seats removed for a three seater?

I think those old lifts were slow with a very low capacity.

Most are still there. I’ve seen some from the single, at the breakover near the top.

I believe the Upper Mountain single chair went to Fun Valley, but not 100% certain.
