  1. I may be posting in the wrong place and if I am I apologize. I'm a grandma with a Winter Village that lured me into Lego. I had it at work as a kids therapist for 2 years but it outgrew my office and has a spot at home now. Lots of children play with it from Thanksgiving to New Years. They run the trains, and build their families out of minifigs so it is more strong than elegant. Three years ago I saw some pretty cool ski lifts online and I want one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnJ2M1iKt40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIZ5WkQp-Uo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSwdposR3Sk and went a little nuts on bricklink buying what I thought I might need. Last year I copied the seats from twigman's non operational warming hut. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/49952-winter-village-ski-lift-and-warming-hut/ Then I stayed intimidated and did nothing until last week. I copied the Friends ski lift which is pretty worthless for what I want and then I built an ugly fortress. Then I went online and learned as much as I could about how real ski lifts work. I bought Sariel's book and built a better tower that doesn't pop off the hill as easily. I finally uploaded my first pix ever to flickr hoping someone here can help me. https://www.flickr.com/photos/143898716@N08/ I tried twine, drapery cord, and yarn to drive my bullwheels but all are too slippery and if I tighten them I collapse my towers. Also my motor needs to be geared down but I'm not understanding enough. I let kids crash trains but I want this to work well before they get their hands on the remote. There is a local LUG but I have to Take care of my Dad on the weekend it meets. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks, Karen
