Good news is PayDay is expected to open for business on Wednesday morning. As Justin stated in his previous blog we pulled the gear box from McConkey's to get PayDay up and operating as quickly as possible. Our lift maintenance team worked through the night to get PayDay's gear box out. This picture was taken at 8 am this morning. The gear box is an intricate piece of the 12,000 pound bull-wheel assembly shown.
As for McConkey's, we are in the process of ordering the parts needed to replace the broken ones in PayDay's gear box. We should know when we will receive the parts by tomorrow morning. In the meantime, the terrain serviced by McConkey's can be accessed via the South Traverse around Jupiter Peak, which is dependent on snow safety.
