Following our last update, construction continues on our new Buck Quad chairlift, which will be operational for the 2013/14 winter season.
This week Team Elmer's was busy pouring the concrete for both our lower and upper lift terminals. Here's the team working at the top of the mountain.
The majority of Buck slope's re-sculpting has been completed. Looking down the lift line, it's easy to see how much the slope has been widened. Buck is about to become my favorite northern Michigan black diamond run all over again.
Team Elmer's used their Pump Truck to deliver concrete to the pre-built, lift terminal forms.
The concrete has now set up and the forms have been removed to reveal the foundations for the lift terminals.
The Buck Glades have been cut skier's right of the expanded slope. The new gladed run will drop skiers and riders onto Hoot Owl slope, which leads to the base of Buck slope.
Next on our to-do list: pouring concrete for the foundations of our new snow guns that will be placed beneath each lift tower.
