    also kidding.
    no it was a guy named Radu the Romanian (aka in conversation as Ra don't ) an engineer in ontario who was always late but due to the like minded eclectic people who develop eclectic relationships my neighbor kept using him to sign off on engineering stuff ( Canopy walk ways in nigeria, sierra leon, metlakatla ... way out shit eh ) Radu went back to Romania and was still signing off on some shit for my bud so thats where he got this euro connection/idea for used lift gear but apparently the $$$$$ didnt add up

    My buddy has since been taken by a curable cancer so thats the end of it, but you can still get a colonoscopy eh

But that was scheduled. The $100k cost is to cover his insurance cuz you really don't want to fuck that up.

    I would talk to patrol and see if skinning will be allowed cuz its probably not gonna happen till summer.
    That's awesome. This doesn't really seem like the kind of work you can do in the middle of a Montana winter.

    I would love to know how this works when the chairs are woven into the cable. What a fucking disaster.

    On top of that, my wife is at the ER with the 6-year-old who was pissed about the chair yesterday and who just got diagnosed with a lateral condyle fracture in his elbow and is getting scheduled for surgery tomorrow. 2020 is off to a banger of a start.

    That's a cool video, and yeah, I think Duke will say you're totally fucked with that chair design. Sorry to hear about the kid

    I don't get the connection. Did he elbow Pat in the jaw?

    Strand patch

    I forget how many diameters long & donít have the code book at hand. Thatís when youíre glad you saved some stuff from the original splice so you have the right stuff to use. But lookin at the pic I think there might be damage to multiple strands that necessitates a new piece of rope and two splices...yuck...or a new rope.

    ^^^cool

    So, they can splice it?
    Skinning up to the bowls and far east better be allowed.
    Losttrail was great today lol.
    No longer stuck.

    I would bet that Bridger may have a section of similar cable laying about from one of their old lifts. Or Maybe check with Teton Pass or whatever it is called these days.
    Ooof!

    As Bunion2020 implies, If they can find the right kinda rope, maybe. I never worked on a Riblet, but it's gonna be a lot of long days and evenings to prep for a splice. If I remember right it took us (8 mechanics +2 Cats/Catdrivers) 4 days to before it loaded public again. This entailed pulling 190 something double chairs off (Day 1). De-tensioning and moving the motor room forward while snowcats built a working platform to drop the rope onto (Day 2). Drop rope, let the Duke do his magic, put rope back on, move motor room back, while the snowcats clean out the platform (Day 3). Put chairs back on and load test(edit: I'm pretty sure we had to load test but cant remember everthing) Visible and Electromagnetic rope inspection by the Duke, rebuild bottom loading ramp (Day 4).

    Bottom Line: It's gonna be a while.

    It sounds like they are going to try and splice the single damaged strand. An optimistic statement for sure.

    If they actually pull it off, who will be the first person to ride it?
