I suppose that if there's good news to come out of this unseasonably warm weather, then it must be that progress on our new Crescent Lift has been moving along rapidly. I had heard that four chair were put on the haul rope yesterday so the crew could run the lift for some initial checks. Those must have gone fine, because they've been ferrying chairs from the parking lot to the lift for most of the day today.
I just took these photos and as you can see it's starting to really look like a lift, the load test is scheduled for Monday and then all we need is some cold and snow (and yes, I will update the blog with ANY information on snowmaking, snow, etc. as soon as it happens)!
