As a heatwave overtakes New England, the lift construction season is also heating up.

Forms are being set at Sunday River for Gould Academy's racing T-Bar. The brand new Doppelmayr lift's base terminal will be located between the Locke Mountain Triple and Barker Mountain Quad. The lift will cross under the triple and terminate in the vicinity of the seasonal mid station. Towers, line equipment, and bullwheels have been staged in a nearby parking lot.

Three lifts are being constructed for the general public in Vermont. Killington's North Ridge Quad is the only brand new chairlift being built in New England. As the North Ridge complex is traditionally the first to open each season, work has accelerated with the top terminal of the Leitner Poma fixed grip lift already taking shape.

Magic Mountain Black Line Quad

Magic Mountain has begun work on the base terminal of its Poma fixed grip quad, replacing its triple chairlift. Work is still being completed on the upper portion of the lift line for the former Stratton Snow Bowl Quad.

Ascutney has continued work on its refurbished Doppelmayr T-Bar, while LiftBlog reports a Leitner Poma surface lift is being installed at the Army Mountain Warfare School northern Vermont.
