New Hampshire Lift Construction Projects Progressing
Three new chairlifts are expected to be completed this year in the Granite State.

Snow may still be melting on the slopes, but New Hampshire ski areas are quickly moving forward with off-season chairlift projects.

The largest project this year is the bubble six pack at Waterville Valley. The only install subject to Bicknell's Thrush restrictions, work on high elevation footings started last fall. Only the haul rope remains from the 1988 White Peaks Quad, which was taken down and scrapped earlier this spring. The rest of the new high elevation footings were poured just before the May 15 deadline, with subsequent work now focused below 3,000 feet. Major high elevation construction can resume in mid-August. The lift is the first brand new chairlift at Waterville since 1997.

To the north at Loon, the Seven Brothers base terminal has been removed and the lift line staked. The 1985 CTEC triple top terminal and towers remain standing. The lift will be replaced with a refurbished 1995 Doppelmayr high speed quad, formerly located at the West Basin complex.

Footings are also being poured for the new Progression Quad at Attitash. The Doppelmayr fixed grip lift is replacing the 1973 Borvig double-double chairlifts that did not operate last season. Towers have already been delivered for the lift, the first new chair at Attitash since 1998.
