Sky Chair Auction
We are auctioning off the chairs from our Sky Chair. Cypress Mountain's iconic Sky Chair has been the gateway to our unparalleled mountain top viewpoint since it was first installed thirty five years ago. The 1968 vintage Mueller chairlift, was removed from Apex Alpine Resort near Penticton in early September 1987, and transported to Cypress Mountain where it was completely rebuilt and re-designed for placement on the upper slopes of Mt. Strachan. The Team at Cypress Mountain completed the entire project in just three months, and the chairlift opened December 10, 1987, powered by an old diesel engine attached to the drive station.
