Here comes the snow (du du du du), here comes the snow and I say it’s alright. Our Mountain Forecaster's calling for 6-12” over the next 3 days, giving you a great reason to stay an extra day or three. 

Temps are supposed to be in the low 20s today, with partly cloudy skies in the morning and snow in the afternoon. We could be seeing a couple inches on the ground by final chair today.

Please be advised that we are closing in on capacity for Monday, March 2nd and Tuesday, March 3rd at the Pump House.  Anyone hoping to guarantee access, must purchase tickets online and in advance.

Splicing Cables With Bonnie

By Andrew, on Wed, Nov 27, 2013

View/Hide Photos

It's no secret that nothing lasts forever (except the Grateful Dead's legacy), and time wears away even the most well-built structures. The key to consitent quality with any equipment requires continued service and care. While providing patrons with uphill access, the constant weight and perpetual rotations cause our chairlift cables to slowly stretch over time.  Fixed grip chairlifts like our Jet Triple, Taxi Quad and Bonaventure Chair can run for several decades without requiring any cable splicing, core replacement and tightening. Our cable service providers, Dale R. Walters' Mountain Wire Rope Service specialize in wire rope splicing, repairs and inspections. Certified throughout the U.S., Walters, and his son J.T. service about 135 different areas across the East and Midwest. But wire rope techs are a dying breed, in a trade that requires several thousands of miles on the road and many consecutive months away from home, on top of a physically demanding regime exposed to the elements. With the help of our Mountain Ops. crew, Walters' Mountain Rope Service removed a portion of the Bonaventure cable's nylon core and replaced it with a tight, new section that will service our skiers and riders for years to come.
