SuperQuad Communications Line Intsall

Monday, September 12, 2016

The SuperQuad will be closed to scenic lift rides this weekend, while the lift maintenance team and a crew from Doppelmayr work to install a new communications line. 

The old communications line was taken down yesterday, and the new line has already been strung over the towers. The new line will be tensioned tomorrow so that it will be ready for the arrival of personnel from Doppelmayr later in the week. 

Working with our lift technicians, the Doppelmayr crew will re-wire all of the connections at the towers and terminals, and re-program the lift's computer system. This process alone will take an estimated 4-5 days, after which the crew will test the functionality of the new line. 

While it's disappointing to miss a weekend of scenic lift rides, the lift maintenance team felt it was necessary to schedule this work now, rather than waiting for the scenic lift ride season to end. Completing the work now allows them to take advantage of the warmer weather, and will allow them to observe the lift in operation for several weeks after the new communication line is installed, and make any adjustments as necessary. 

If the installation goes as planned, we expect to have the SuperQuad back up and running for scenic lift rides on the 24th of September.
