Despite an ominous 2015-16 winter, ski lift installation projects are gradually being finalized in northern New England.

At Waterville Valley, CEO Chris Sununu is expected to announce tomorrow the installation of a fixed grip triple chairlift on Green Peak. As first reported on NewEnglandSkiInudstry.com News in June, the World Cup Triple is being dismantled and is slated to be relocated to the new trail complex. According to a press release issued last night, SkyTrans of Contoocook, NH will be installing the lift. While a survey line was cleared in 2015, actual lift line clearing and excavation is still forthcoming.

At Sunday River, a loading carpet Doppelmayr fixed grip triple was recently announced as a replacement for collapsed Spruce Triple.

At Cannon, SkyTrac has completed much of the installation of a semi-private T-Bar, manufactured by LST. The lift is being installed adjacent to the Mittersill double chairlift.

At Whaleback, a used Hall T-Bar is being staged in a parking lot for possible installation this year. Acquired from Plattekill, the lift would be installed on the lower west side of the ski area on the former Pomalift line. While no concrete work has been conducted to date, the ski area is planning on a mid-December debut for the lift.
