While skiers and riders enjoyed some of the best spring conditions in years, crews from Doppelmayr have been assembling the new chairlift for the South Peak Expansion project.
Bits and Pieces
Over the past several weeks, shipments of the new Doppelmayr Alpenstar 4-place lift have streamed in. All 14 of the lift towers are on site and staged for installation. The bullwheels have arrived, and the cross-arms are being assembled and prepared as well.
The snowmaking team is also in action and has begun stringing frost-free pipes for the South Peak Expansion. Sections of pipe are currently being welded together and positioned on the mountain.
As work continues on the new lift, crews are getting ready for the next steps, flying concrete for the foundations.
