Lift towers for North America’s first eight-person chairlift were successfully flown into position at Big Sky Resort in Montana, US, yesterday.

In a coordinated operation by staff from the resort, Doppelmayr – the manufacturer of the chairlift – and Timberline Helicoptors, 13 towers were installed in under 12 hours.

The installation marks a significant milestone towards the completion of the Ramcharger 8, a D-Line chair that is seen as the most technologically advanced chairlift yet to be built.

Ramcharger 8, which was first announced in March this year, is set to open this December and carry up to 3600 skiers per hour.
