Clear Skies.

The sun is out, and although we haven't seen any buns out yet, we have seen a lot of smiling, tanning, faces. Trails are in excellent shape and the sunshine is helping to soften things up a bit. Temps around the hill are hovering in the high-20s, a bit cool than originally expected, but we like cold.

Today, ski and ride on all 78 trails accessed by 8 of our 9 lifts. (Crews are performing some maintenance on the Bonaventure Quad today) Upper mountain lifts are scheduled to spin at 8:30 AM, just after lower mountain lifts start off the day at 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM.

Splicing Cables With Bonnie

By Andrew, on Wed, Nov 27, 2013

View/Hide Photos

It's no secret that nothing lasts forever (except the Grateful Dead's legacy), and time wears away even the most well-built structures. The key to consitent quality with any equipment requires continued service and care. While providing patrons with uphill access, the constant weight and perpetual rotations cause our chairlift cables to slowly stretch over time.  Fixed grip chairlifts like our Jet Triple, Taxi Quad and Bonaventure Chair can run for several decades without requiring any cable splicing, core replacement and tightening. Our cable service providers, Dale R. Walters' Mountain Wire Rope Service specialize in wire rope splicing, repairs and inspections. Certified throughout the U.S., Walters, and his son J.T. service about 135 different areas across the East and Midwest. But wire rope techs are a dying breed, in a trade that requires several thousands of miles on the road and many consecutive months away from home, on top of a physically demanding regime exposed to the elements. With the help of our Mountain Ops. crew, Walters' Mountain Rope Service removed a portion of the Bonaventure cable's nylon core and replaced it with a tight, new section that will service our skiers and riders for years to come.
