Lift Terminals Installed & Winter is Here!

The New High-Speed Lift is Coming Together!

The new high speed quad, Legends Lift 8, is coming together!  Crews installed the top drive terminal of the lift just before the latest storm moved in.  There’s still a lot of assembly work to be done, but the big process of setting the top terminal with the crane was completed yesterday, as well as setting the lift house at the top.  Crews are now taking the crane down to the bottom of the lift to install the bottom terminal later this week.

Winter is Here!

Winter is at Purgatory once again, and the latest storm could produce about a foot of snow at the resort!  With the frontal passage and cold temperatures, our snowmaking crews are now able to work around the clock to blow snow from the bottom of Lift 2 down Demon.  We expect to be extremely productive with our snowmaking efforts, having several days to make snow.

Here’s a video from today, Nov. 4, plus some snowmaking pictures from last week.
