Lots of progress with the new Chair 4! The bottom lift terminal is almost completed. Check out the new video of the helicopter flying the gravel and forms!
The Poma crew and helicopter pilot were busy at Loveland Ski Area. Today they flew up some forms and gravel. They should be ready to fly in the concrete next week.
The new Chair 4 lift towers arrived at Loveland Ski Area. It's just a matter of time until they're flown up by helicopter to their new home on the mountain!

Poma arrived at the ski area today. We also started to see parts of the new Chair 4 come in! Not too long until the major work begins!
Goodbye bottom lift terminal! Our crew knocked the bottom lift terminal down. Later this summer you'll see the new building!
Today the crew at Loveland removed the lift towers from Chair 4. Our Trail Maintence crew used the snowcats to pull them out. That side of the mountain looks totally different without Old Chair 4. Once all the snow melts, we'll be busy building the new Chair 4.
All the chairs have been removed and taken to the bottom of the mountain. They're are ready to be sold and picked up!
