Lift Tower Installation Complete!
The lift towers for our brand new chairlift are in place thanks to the incredible work, professionalism and skill of our crew on the Hunter North Project. Flying, catching, securing and installing each tower on the project in just under three hours!
This morning we flew and installed these support towers for our brand new high speed six passenger chairlift. The new chairlift is our second six passenger chairlift, and will service the new expansion area, Hunter North, which adds a third more skiable terrain to our current offerings with 5 new trails and 4 new gladed skiing areas. Hunter Mountain is the first ski resort in New York State to have two high speed six passenger chairlifts.
The towers were transported and installed with the assistance of Construction Helicopters Inc. out of Howell, Michigan. Using their 1,400 horsepower, two turbo shaft engine Sikorsky helicopter, towers were transported from a staging site near the new Hunter North base area to the new lift line for installation on their respective foundations.
