August may be nearing an end, but lift construction continues in full gear across much of New England.
Attitash - Progression Quad
Towers have been erected for the Progression Quad at Attitash. This new Doppelmayr fixed grip lift replaces the 1973 Borvig double-double chairlifts that did not operate last season.
Catamount - Catamount Quad
Chairs are expected to be hung on Catamount's new mid-mountain lift any day now. Construction originally started last year for this refurbished Garaventa-CTEC quad. Catamount also expects its Glades Triple to be completed in time for the upcoming season.
Loon - Seven Brothers Quad
Excavation continues for this Doppelmayr project, with much of the concrete already poured. The former Kancamagus Express Quad will be installed on this line, replacing the Seven Brothers Triple (which has been shipped to Massif du Sud Regional Park in Quebec).
Stowe - Sunrise Six
Concrete was recently flown for Stowe's new high speed six pack. The Dopplemayr lift replaces the Mountain Triple.
Sunday River - Jordan Eight
The top and bottom terminals are quickly taking shape for Sunday River's new Jordan lift. Tower footings have also been poured for this Doppelmayr high speed eight person bubble chair, which replaces a high speed quad.
Sugarloaf - CVA T-Bar
Equipment has arrived for the new Carrabassett Valley Academy T-Bar at Sugarloaf. The Doppelmayr lift will be installed between Competition Hill and Narrow Gauge, running 1,200 feet over the course of 380 vertical feet.
Waterville Valley - White Peaks Six
Towers have been installed and the base terminal and barn are quickly taking shape at Waterville Valley. The MND high speed six person bubble chairlift replaces the White Peaks Quad.
