The Next day we made the trek up to Lake Tahoe via Donner Summit & stopped by Mike Basich’s Area-241 to see the work in progress on his chairlift.  Mike owns 40 acres on the Pass and has already constructed his own house, tow-rope and now his personal chairlift.  “Each chair will be pieces of art” says Mike, for instance one chair will be a Monkey hanging off the cable and you will sit in it’s hand.  He also plans on having art work all over the runs, paintings hanging from trees, a 24 ft quarter pipe, 40 ft table top jump & all sorts of Natural Features like Log slides and stuff.
