Sun Peaks has announced that work on the new Orient quad chairlift is underway.
Over the last month significant work was completed on the top terminal, base terminal, and the bases of the towers.
Crews finished off the grading and moved on to laying the foundations for the chairlift. Construction was completed from the top down, warding off any potential disruptions from the snowline that is quickly descending towards the worksites.
The final pieces of the concrete work are expected to be finished over the next few days. At the same time, steel parts for the lift continue to arrive in Sun Peaks ready to be assembled and installed. Work on erecting the top terminal is already underway, while the bottom terminal and lift huts will follow over the next couple of weeks. The lift towers will be flown into place by helicopter in early November.
