Scope and content

Skiers stand in lines at the chairlifts on the Peak 8 base area of the Breckenridge ski resort in Colorado. In the foreground is the ski area's original lift named Chairlift 1, a Heron Double chairlift. Next is a platter pull type lift, Poma 1 (also called B-100). In the background is Chairlift 5. Chairlift 5 was installed for the 1970-1971 season and was considered the fastest lift at the resort at that time.
