Skico selling Naked Lady lift

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

SNOWMASS ” For the next couple of months, the Aspen Skiing Co. will be dismantling the Naked Lady lift at Snowmass. The lift will be shipped to a ski hill in Lutsen, Minn.

“It is a redundant lift ” other lifts can be used to access the same terrain ” and saw little traffic when it was used,” said Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle.

The lift was installed in 1981. It was named after the Naked Lady Run, which was named because one of the men on the trail crew had a Playboy centerfold tacked up on a tree at their lunch spot.

Helicopters will fly the towers out on Friday, June 13.
