Thunderbird in the 50s.

Thunderbird was a chairlift at Snoqualmie Summit (Later Summit West). Built in 1954, it was the second chairlift on the Pass and the first double chair on the Pass. After many years of service, it was removed in 2002.

Chair LocationEdit

The Thunderbird Double started at the West base area, just about where the current Dodge Ridge chair stands. It went up the Thunderbolt run and riders would get off to the left of the Thunderbird Restaurant in between the restaurant and the Wildside top station.
