Crazy Scary Chairlift

So far I have been skiing in Furano twice. The last time I went, I rode on this insanely old and scary chairlift. You're basically propping yourself up on this little backless bench, holding on for dear life, on the very long and very slow ride to the top. I think these chairlifts are left over from the 50's. They are actually made of WOOD!!! This is not to say that all the chairlifts in Furano are made of wood and built for Julius Ceasar. They also have a tram car, gondolas, four-person superfast, and just regular two-person. Quite a variety to choose from.

This is Katie's good friend, Judy. Give it up for her, She's British!!! (If you can name the movie I'm ripping off, you get a sticker when I get home.)
