Big changes are happening for this season! We installed a new 300ft
carpet lift to replace the old rope tow and a quad chairlift was installed
to replace the Orange and the Yellow TBar.
300 ft carpet lift
Over the summer, we installed a new 300 ft carpet lift to replace
our old rope tow and this new lift opened in early November.
A Leitner-Poma-BM chairlift was delivered in May 2017 and opened in February 2018.
The used four-passenger (quad) chair, which we bought from a ski area in Ontario,
replace both the Orange TBar and the Yellow TBar and runs from the bottom of
Andy's Gully up to the top near our existing chair.
We had hoped to open the new chairlift
at the beginning of the 2017-2018 season but some things took a little longer than expected.
Although this is a used chairlift, every component (motor, gearbox, sheave assemblies,
brakes, hydraulics, electronics and safety systems) has been rebuilt or is brand
new. A critical component, the new drive electronics (basically the computer which
monitors and controls
the lift), arrived a little later than expected but after a lot of work by our dedicated staff, the quad chairlift opened on Feb. 7, 2018.
