Attitash is having a very busy offseason. The New Hampshire ski resort is replacing the much-maligned Summit Triple with a detachable high-speed quad from Leitner-Poma. The new chairlift will have a ride time of six minutes and increase Attitash’s comfortable carrying capacity.
Attitash’s June 1st video update showed the haul rope, comm line, and bottom terminal being removed.
In an update from this Saturday, they detailed the latest progress on the Mountaineer, along with other projects they’re working on this offseason.
The drive station, top terminal, and most lift towers have been removed. Some of the lift towers in the steepers sections are still in place and will be removed by a helicopter. They will be doing some blasting today to get rid of the granite at the base area and then will move to the summit to get rid of the granite around the future top terminal.
Other projects include replacing the snowmaking pipes on the Spillway trail, which will help include snow coverage, and the regrading of the Progression Quad, which will make it easier to unload
