These vintage photos of the Snow King chairlift taken between the 1950s and 1970s show people riding very unsafely without any safety bars or other protections deployed. While these chairlifts were indeed dangerous, there is also a forced perspective component that makes the lift appear to be much higher than it actually is. Snow King Mountain Winter Resort is located in Downtown Jackson, Wyoming and the original 1936 ski hill was on the southeast edge of town. This was Wyoming's first ski area.
