Some will recall us making news regarding the purchase of an ex-Treble Cone 2 seater chair lift last summer. Well plans changed and we traded that unit in for a much better condition ex-Cardrona "La Franchie" 2 seater chair. 
 
In the last few months we have had the equipment transported to its new home here at Ohau. Doppelmayer NZ have completed most of the installation surveying required including some recent changes - re-working the profile plan to 9 towers and increasing the capacity to 1200 skiers and boarders per hour on a 4.5 minute trip. For comparison our current chair runs at 700 skiers and boarders per hour on a 6.5 minute trip. The re-working of the installation design will also mean a saving for us in installation costs, bringing Jock's dream closer to reality. 
 
We still rely on having an out of the box season this year to go ahead with the install early next year. 
Keep on Loving, Liking and Sharing; support us in reaching our target.. Because believe me, it is YOU that will reap the rewards! 
 
More information on the developments will be shared as soon as we get them!
