It’s Wayback Wednesday: Before the current quad chairlifts, skiers were pulled up with the t-bar. We would love to hear your ‘shareable’ Valley stories.


Welcome to Wayback Wednesday sponsored by Cavalcade Color Lab! Every week, we’ll be sharing a vintage photo and asking our readers to chime in with anything you can recall about the photo, other related memories, or even a funny caption. Have some vintage photos of your own? Send them to [email protected] and we may share them with our readers!

There have been many changes at Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area over the years. Before the current quad chairlifts, skiers were pulled up with the T-bar. Do you remember the gentleman lift attendant Floyd? Were you heavy enough to hold the T-bar down on your own? Share your Valley stories, if they are shareable. 🙂

Scroll down to see comments from last week’s photo.

    Hidden Valley Way Back Wednesday

    I had the pleasure of working with Floyd Bartlett for most of my years at Hidden Valley. Floyd worked at Hidden Valley from day one.
    Floyd was a hard working man. always had a sense of humor and a team player. It was his T-Bar.
    He had little education but a brilliant man in his own right. He was a “get’er done guy, always remembered.
