Chair Sales

It’s time to say goodbye to the Norway Lift. For 40 years, this fixed-grip double chair shuttled us to the top of the mountain, accessing some of our favorite pieces of terrain. A-Basin will be decommissioning and removing the lift this summer. Purchase a chance to own a piece of A-Basin history for $5; all entry fees will be donated to the Summit Foundation. We’ll randomly select roughly 114 entrants and give them the chance to purchase one of the classic Norway Lift chairs. Read on for more information about how you can bring a piece of legendary ski history into your home.


Pay $5 to win a chance to purchase a Norway Lift chair; all entry fees will be donated to the Summit Foundation. Each chair will cost $550 + tax (limit one chair per person, per household). You can donate more if you wish, but your name will only be entered once. Your entry fee does NOT go toward the cost of the chair. In addition to us donating the entry fees, we will be donating a portion of the total lift sales to 13 local charities in Summit County.

As the largest philanthropic organization in Summit County, the Summit Foundation collaborates with our local community partners to make a difference.
