Happy 75th birthday Alta!

Tonight Alta Ski Lifts celebrated 75 years since the Collins lift first started running on January 15, 1939. On that day, a single ride cost 25 cents and an all day ticket was $1.25. Today, you can see several of the original single Collins chairs hanging at Alta - two next to the Goldminer's Daughter Lodge in the main parking lot, and two hanging next to the bottom of the new Collins chair.

The celebration tonight included a torchlight parade down Alf's High Rustler and fireworks. The number 75 was written out in torches at the top of High Rustler:
