Ski Lift

Ski Lift

The Ski Lift brings you up high and steep mountains so people can ski. The Ski Lift was originally thought of by Jim Curran 75 years ago. He was a structural engineer and got the bright idea of adapting a system used to load bunches of bananas on boats into one to move people up steep, snow covered slopes. 

The person that built the Ski Lift was William Averell Harriman. The ski lift honestly has not changed that much over the years. The ski lifts had almost stayed the same since it was thought of. One improvement I think the ski lift needs to have a foot rest so people can rest their feet.
