    I think the Monday morning chairlift install quarterbacks do not fully appreciate the hostility of the weather at 2,500-4,000 feet since late OCTOBER. Way colder and snowier than normal, and every subsequent delay took them further and further into cold and snow. So far this year they have had FIVE FEET of snow, and most of that is still on the ground. Not exactly to plan, chair lift install wise......

    However, given the swath of terrain affected by the construction, extremely important to the skiing product.

    Omg i cant wait to hear about this shitshow from afar the next couple of weeks. 95% of stratton visitors have no idea that complete and utter chaos will be rained up them this upcoming xmas week. I might drive up just to stand by guest services to hear the bitching.

    Snow is tough on construction. I was involved with a building project at work a number of years ago. You don't need much snow to throw a wrench in the gears. Even with good equipment, it takes hours to clear a site of snow before any work can start. Daylight is in short supply this time of year as well.

    Yet apparently have not performed any construction this time of year, especially on the side of a mountain.

    I work in construction on Long Island, and even if there is no snow, working with tools and hardware in the cold sucks, your hands get frozen, and its hard using gloves in certain situations. In other words the productivity drops, then if you add in snow/ice it really slows down.
