Homewood Ski Resort, CA is replacing the bearing and liner for the top of Madden Triple chair, starting today.

This can be watched from the web camera for those interested to see it happen.

Just wondering...is this "load test" your 7 year ANSI Dynamic Test or something required by the State?
In Colorado, bullwheel liners and bearings are a "one-for-one" replacement and do not require a "load test".
