Further delays for opening of Lightning Express
Written by Administrator on February 15, 2015
The opening of Marble Mountain’s new chairlift Lightning Express experiences further delays. The new chairlift is now expected to open mid to late March. It was previously expected to open this weekend, however additional modifications are now necessary.
Here is a media release from lift manufacturer Leitner-Poma:
“Regarding the opening of the Lightning Express chairlift at Marble Mountain we regret to inform Marble Mtn. skiers and riders that due to the incompatibility of certain new and re-used components there are additional engineering and on-site modifications necessary before officially opening the chairlift to the public. While there are variables in any scheduled outdoor work this time of the year, we expect this work to be completed by mid to late March 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause but we will do our best efforts to open the chairlift as soon as possible.”
