With ski season perhaps days or weeks away, lift installation projects are in full gear.

Suicide Six is installing the only brand new chairlift in New England this year. The Leitner-Poma fixed grip quad replaces the main Borvig double that served the area for four decades.

The base terminal support tubes have been installed and some tower footings poured. Towers, bullwheels, and cross arms are on site.

Waterville Valley's installation is the only lift in New England to serve new terrain this year. The World Cup Triple will be relocated to serve some 45 acres of terrain on Green Peak. The Albertsson-Stadeli-Doppelmayr lift is being installed by SkyTrans.

While excavation of the cut trails continues, forms have been constructed for the base terminal. The base terminal and most of the towers have been repainted in preparation for the relocation.

Cannon's new semi private racing T-Bar is largely complete, with the bottom lift operator building recently added. The LST lift was installed by Leitner-Poma's SkyTrac.

Meanwhile, towers have been painted and survey stakes planted at Whaleback in preparation for a possible used T-Bar installation this fall. The short Hall lift was acquired from Plattekill, NY.
