2017 Lift Installations

Comments

    Sorry to hear about Magic's delay.  Those guys are doing a great job and getting a carpet in on the old beginner slope and getting Green up and going are huge steps.  From what I understand Black is good to go so everything is looking up for them.  Enjoyed BLT for happy hour one night last season and they did great job there.  Freedom pass is looking more and more appealing. Come on Tenney get on board.

  • Regarding Magic's Green Chair: Please don't let this come across as being cold, but since I don't know the facts, I must ask: how does one person's medical condition hold up a lift installation?

    Small specialized outfits (like aerial tramway companies) often rely heavily on 1 or 2 people. Besides Poma or Dopplemayr this is the case. There are very few outfits that not only have the skill to refurbish something like the Green chair, but are willing to put forth a proposal to do so.

  • There are also precious few tram inspectors in Vermont to certify the lift as well.

    How many are there? And how long does it take to schedule an inspection?  It would make sense that a state that depends so much on the ski industry tourist business would be very responsive to a request to inspect a lift.

    If it's like NH they can come almost immediately, getting an inspector is no issue. Just requires 48 hrs notice. There were 2 inspectors up to this year when they added a third.
  • There are three for the state and for all 184 lifts according to the Department of Labor. They check out each lift before the season and then at least four times during the winter.
