Trying to maximize the construction season, crews are already working on multiple lift projects across New England.

Sunday River Construction

Doppelmayr is already staging equipment at Sunday River for the new Jordan eight-person bubble chairlift. Chairs have been removed from the existing Jordan Express Quad, which closed on March 27. The lift is rumored to be slated for installation either elsewhere at Sunday River or at Shawnee Peak next year.

Attitash Double Double

Attitash's Borvig double-double is now mostly removed, as only the base terminal and unloading stations remain visible. A Doppelmayr fixed grip quad will be installed in its place this summer.

Waterville Valley Construction

Crews have resumed work on Waterville Valley's new six-person bubble chairlift. The White Peaks Express Quad will close tomorrow and will be subsequently removed. Upper mountain footings for the new MND lift were poured last fall. Preparation work may also take place for the future lower mountain T-Bar, pending permit approvals.

Magic Mountain Quad

Work on the Black Line Quad has resumed at Magic, with at least one sheave train already replaced. Construction commenced on the refurbished Poma fixed grip quad in 2019, only to be delayed by COVID-19 shutdowns and engineering issues.

At present, 11 chairlifts are slated for completion this year, including three carry-overs (Catamount Quad and Glades Triple at Catamount, Black Line Quad at Magic). Additional installations and upgrades may be forthcoming. The largest installation season this century was 2003, when 13 chairlifts were constructed or upgraded across New England.
