UPDATED 9/5/19: WATCH VIDEO OF ACTUAL INSTALLATION HERE:
On Tuesday morning, September 3, Tamarack Resort will begin installation of the new Wildwood high-speed quad ski lift. It’s an impressive process that will take several hours and require a heavy-duty helicopter to fly the lift towers and cross arms into place and expert crews to secure the lift towers (here is an example from an installation at Vail https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CSxkYnyFg0 ). We welcome you to join us Tuesday at the resort to view this awesome event. Starting at 8am, we’ll gather in the Aspen parking lot at the entrance of the resort to observe the first towers being lifted from the staging area and flown to Wildwood. After approximately 30-45 minutes of observing that part of the process, the group will use their personal vehicles to drive together in a caravan to the Wildwood terrain for a closer look at the install process on the mountain. Vehicles will have an opportunity to leave with an escort vehicle on the hour to head back down and off of the mountain road. Tamarack President Jon Reveal will be available for interviews with the media, and homeowners and members of the community will also be in attendance.
