The Lift 9 Project – From Start to Finish

The Lift 9 Project – From Start to Finish
January 30, 2023 Jordan Verroi

The Chair 9 Project has been a whirlwind to say the least. From conception to construction, our team and Doppelmayr have overcome a number of obstacles in order to bring us a state-of-the art chairlift during the 2022/2023 winter season. With acceptance testing complete and training done as well, we’ve finally reached the finish line. In honor of this achievement, we want to share a quick review of all the progress that has taken place.
