Collins Chair

During 1938 and very early in 1939, the Alta Ski Lifts Company built its first chair lift - the Colling Lift, the first in the Wasatch Mountains, the fifth in the United States, and probably the fifth in the world. The Collins Lift first carried paying skiers up Collins Gulch on January 15th, 1939.

One of the original chairs from the Collins Lift is on display in the Museum lobby.
