    Those are some great photos...seems like they have a heck of a lot of work left to do though. I hope they didn't try to take on too much in one year.

    Correct me if i'm wrong...They are still still putting in towers!? This weather forecast is saying October skiing not major construction! No room for error here

    Like most lift installation, they always come to the wire, and over it.

    The only lift needed by Thanksgiving is the Snowdon 6 and it will be done by then.

    Exactly. This is no surprise as to timing. These are big projects with lots of reviews to complete, contractors, and many moving pieces.

    My distinct feeling, with the speed that a lift goes together at the end, is that doubters of the Snowdon 6 being completed by Thanksgiving will soon have that "ah ha" moment as the terminal assembly and haul rope stringing gets moving quickly

    And have to appease the Thrush! With how quickly LP terminals go together, bet the Snowdon 6 is strong with chairs by Nov 1st.
