Here’s another excellent opportunity to pick up a used chairlift this summer, with this auction coming from Loon Mountain Resort in New Hampshire. Loon is currently replacing the old Seven Brothers Triple with a high-speed quad that originally serviced the West Basin side of the mountain. Loon announced yesterday that they are auctioning off forty-three of the old Seven Brothers chairs, which started on Tuesday at 12 p.m. E.S.T. The auction will last until August 12 at 12:00 p.m., with minimum bids starting at $450. The proceeds are going to the Lincoln & Woodstock Friends of Recreation.
If you win one of the chairs, you must pick it up “on August 27 or September 3 between 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Escape Route Parking Lot located off Cooper Memorial Drive in Lincoln.” This parking lot is located on the South Peak side of the mountain. If you don’t pick it up by 4 p.m. on September 3’rd, the ownership of the chair goes back to Loon, and you will not be able to get a refund.
