We're expecting snow tonight and tomorrow (and we expect to resume snowmaking operations by tomorrow at the latest), and our crew is working overtime to get as much work done on the magic carpet before the ground freezes. Here are a few photos of our progress so far - we're still on track to have this project completed by Opening Day (November 16, 2013):
The installation begins: we currently have 80 feet installed - just 390 feet to go.
This carpet replaces our Poma platter lift, renowned as New Mexico's oldest lift.
