A new chairlift at Summit East » NEW CHAIRLIFT


Crews of chairlift mechanics from The Summit at Snoqualmie are kept busy bolting down chairlift towers as a heavy-lift helicopter carries whole tower assemblies and other parts up the hill at the Summit East ski area. The main lift on the front side of the mountain, a triple chair called “East Peak”, and the lift on the back side, “Hidden Valley” are being replaced for the 2010-11 ski season.
