Well that was interesting.

Don't think one went for less than £550.

>£20,000 raised by my calculation

New chair coming on.

Glühwein is the correct spelling. Did you have Glühwein weather to match? I would have loved to buy a chair, but the £550 minimum would have been well beyond my budget and it would have ended up in a storage room for an indefinite period any way.

One random (and very anorak like) thought, what shade/brand of yellow did Glenshee actually paint these chairs? If you want to keep your chair in proper authentic condition for years to come you need the right paint. I'm guessing it's probably changed from time to time over the years depending on what was available (and cheap).

I read somewhere they weren't in good enough condition.

Odd, if they weren't in good enough condition to sell then they couldn't have been in good enough condition to use on the lift either. Since this lift was operating last season I would have assumed that every thing that was part of the operational lift was potentially saleable if a buyer could be found.

Perhaps they were bought as a single lot by another ski area which still has a single chair of a similar type. Since it looks like there are no immediate plans for the Cliffhanger to be replaced, it would make sense for GC to salvage as many re-useable parts from the Cairnwell chair as they can.

I would have been quite happy with an old knackered one (I bid £127 by email, and clearly didn't get one!).

tim1mw,

We would have been interested if it hadn't been for the fact that the two tows run in the opposite direction, getting on and off backwards could have been a challenge.....

Surely the grips could have been reversed? All the chairs for the cliffy look like they could do to be taken off shot blasted and then hot dipped galvanized.
