We want to hear from you. Our team monitors and inspects our lifts all year long to ensure everything is in top shape, but If you ever see or hear anything of concern while you're on the mountain, or if you just have a question for us, click the button above and let us know.
Each week has brought warmer temperatures, and more concrete to the King Pine terminal construction site, and last week was no exception. With temperatures near ninety, Haley Construction returned with another two loads of concrete for the columns that will support the new lift terminal.
To date, the job site has seen more than 60 yards of concrete, totaling 240,000 pounds (or 120 tons).
Elsewhere around the mountain, the Lift Maintenance team is working tirelessly to complete scheduled upgrades to our other lifts, which includes the installation of a new rollback proxy sensors to drive the drive bullwheels, fitting lifts for new hydraulic emergency braking systems, as well as continued line work and tower maintenance on Skyline and SuperQuad.
All of the chairs have been removed from the Bucksaw lift, and the seven-ton haul rope is expected to come down sometime in the next week. As you may recall from our previous statement, by removing the Bucksaw chairs and towers, we will be able to upgrade the snowmaking on windrow to include tower guns, making more snow than ever before, and enabling us to open that terrain earlier in the season.
