    lift ops and maint

    Looked for a thread and no findy. Anywho, I have a friend or two that do lift maintenance. They are hard working folks who are the heavy hitters of mtn operations and much of what they do happens off season. Wanted to put a few videos here and maybe some others will chime in.

    Cheers

    I was briefly a liftie back in my youth (second favorite job I ever had) and then a snowmaking/mountain ops kind of guy a while later so I like this thread. Keep em coming.

    Sweet thread
    I bumped chairs and picked up tourists for 5 years during the end of my college career in the four corners. Good times that I miss for sure!

    Bumped chairs for 1 season, was going to do a 2nd year but I was asked to join the Patrol.

    Worked a lot with Lift Maint. crews during summers. All of them I have met/worked with/car pooled with are quality people with very few exceptions.

    The grease that keep the wheels spinning. Our maintenance crew at Powder Mountain won the 'Best Department' award at the end of season party. Well deserved.

    I did an avalanche talk at the RMLA (Rocky Mountain Lift Association) meeting last May in Grand Junction. It was a 3 day conference with all sort of lift/ski area related talks and classes. Lot of great folks attended.
