The month of May has been a busy one for our operations crews! If you haven't heard, both the American Eagle and American Flyer lifts are being replaced for the 2018-19 winter season. The Eagle will be a combination lift of gondola cabins and 6-person chairs while the Flyer will be a 6-person chair with bubble enclosures. Also, a brand new entry monument is currently being built! Stay tuned for more updates throughout the summer.

 

 

American Eagle and American Flyer Update

The terminals of both lifts have been removed as well as the chairs and cables. The towers on Eagle are currently being removed with the Flyer towers up next. As the snow continues to melt, installation work will begin.

Copper Entry Monument

You'll notice something big and new next time you enter the resort: a new entry monument. It was time to retire the rock so we opted for a large stone wall that will include the new copper and black color scheme that you've been seeing around on all the new signage. Construction of the wall is complete and the letters are scheduled to be installed starting the week of June 11.
