Why so early? Is it to not tear up the land?

Is Doppelmayr or Leitner-POMA re-installing Harmony?

I know Doppelmayr has relocated a few POMA HSQs in the past, but just curious.

Yep, L-P are doing the Harmony relocate to Crystal and Doppelmayr are doing the new install on Harmony. I'm glad WB are doing the blog. I won't be here this summer to take photos.

Nice-- so the new lift might use old tower tubes and the old one gets new.

You get an Alpha, eh? Bomber lifts, we have an '85 and it's still going strong. Pretty low maintenance.

Looks like that's a top drive unlike the quad.

Hard to tell from these photos, actually. The machinery looks more like the bottom of our H-quad, which is the tension terminal.

It's probably going to be difficult to get any pictures of Peak 6 chairlift construction. However you can see parts of the newly cleared trails from Highway 9. It's a whole lot easier to get Vail lift construction updates because they have a live camera at Mid-Vail that shows the Mountaintop Express.
