Chair 2 Project Update

One of the most interesting, and most critical, aspects of the Chair 2 replacement project is now complete! The haul rope has been spliced and is sitting in place. At 56,000 pounds and 14,000 feet long, the haul rope is an impressive component of the chair. Make sure to check Out Episode 15 of On The Way Up to take a detailed look at the processes. Now the finishing touches for the alignment of terminals and towers can be completed. Finishing work on the electrical connections on each tower will also be taking place this week as well as work on the loading carpet and the system that moves the carries from the garage to the haul rope at the beginning and end of each day. The project is in the home stretch and the finish line is in sight. Once the work is completed, necessary inspections and testing will be scheduled. We look forward to updating you again soon as we approach opening day for the Wenatchee Express!

Chair 2 Project Update

Excitement is at an all-time high as we enter into this final phase of the Chair 2 replacement project. The haul rope has been strung and the splice will be underway this week! Work at the Top Terminal is almost complete but for the finishing touches, and the new motor was started and the bull wheel was spun for the first time. There are only a few major milestones remaining to complete work on the Wenatchee Express! Once the work is completed, necessary inspections and testing will be scheduled. We will continue to keep you up to date with our progress and are thankful for the encouragement and patience you have had as we do our very best to get this job done. Many members of the team here have worked for weeks without days off and we are incredibly thankful for their continued effort!

On The Way Up: Episode 14

The Chair 2 crew has faced some wild weather to kick-off 2021, but they are charging forward. In Episode 14 of On The Way Up, Delcie gives us an update on what's happened over the last week, our GM, Josh Jorgensen, talks about the completion of the project, and we head back to the summit to see the highlights from the top terminal. Last but certainly not least, we watch the bull wheel spin for the first time at the top!

Chair 2 Project Update

If you’ve been on the mountain, or if you’ve been watching the Midway webcam, you’ve seen that great progress has been made in the last week. The roof on the Lower Terminal has been completed, the operator houses at both the top and bottom terminals have been completed, and continued progress on the loading conveyor and chair loading rail system (allows chairs to be moved from the garage on to the haul rope) at the bottom terminal has been made. The installation of electrical connections and systems continues and we have entered another exciting phase of the project - the installation of the Haul Rope. On Wednesday, January 7th mobilization of equipment and materials for the haul rope installation and splice took place. Today, January 8th, a ton of snow at the bottom terminal was moved and the crane was repositioned. None of this worked was made any easier by the accumulation of over two feet of new snow since our last update but we are certainly not complaining about that!
