Doppelmayr continues construction of a new lift, as towers have been set and work on the top terminal is progressing. The high speed quad will be the only brand new chairlift installed in New England this year.

Arctaris Impact Fund acquired the defunct ski area in January for a reported $6.5 million. The area, which closed in 2015, is expected to operate the new detachable quad and two existing fixed grip quads this winter, serving 2,000 vertical feet.
