Our Payday Lift went down with mechanical problems around mid-morning today. The problem has been diagnosed and our lift maintenance team is already hard at work, making repairs. Unlike Bonanza, which required a part to be shipped from Switzerland, repairs for Payday will come from a closer source...our own McConkey's Lift. If all goes as planned, we should have Payday up and running by Wednesday morning.
Unfortunately McConkey's will have to wait for parts from overseas, and we will provide an update on that lift's re-opening as soon as we know more. Some of you hikers, who remember the old days, may actually enjoy this. McConkey's terrain will still be accessible via the Jupiter Lift and a little hiking. More new snow is expected this week.
We know this will affect how a lot of you access the mountain and we have modified our grooming schedule to make sure your day is still an enjoyable, fulfilling experience. Accessing the upper part of the mountain can be accomplished one of two ways. Take First Time Lift to Ski Team Lift. Or, take Eagle Lift to King Con Lift. Both of these options will allow you to visit great terrain all around the mountain.
