Say goodbye to the counterweight building! The concrete bases anchoring the towers for the new hydraulic tensioning system at the Easy Street and Alpine lifts are now in place and back-filled. As a result, the building that formerly housed the massive counterweights is now gone. It is interesting to see how open this area has become. Excavation for the base terminal of the new quad is well underway and the concrete formwork will begin there shortly. This week will see the excavators move up the hill to begin preparing the rest of the tower bases.
