We are pleased to provide another progress update on the North Star Quad chair rebuild, especially since everything we have to share at this point is good news!
All parts required for the rebuild arrived on time, and the Leitner-Poma crews moved into Kimberley in September and have been working with local electrical crews on the lift daily. Once the components are installed, the next step will be commissioning by our crews and Leitner-Poma, and finally testing and approval to operate by Technical Safety BC. We expect the lift to be turning within weeks and the lift to be commissioned and cleared for operation by mid-November.
All indications continue to be that the lift will be ready to go well before our opening date in December. Thank you once again to Leitner-Poma for generously prioritizing the repair of our lift in their busy schedule.
Time to get your skis and boards waxed and ready for the upcoming season. We recommend you get your season pass before the end of the fall sale on October 14th.
Once again, please remember to give our work crews space around the lift and on the mountain roads. Our cameras and night security staff continue to report the odd person getting a bit too close.
