Top Terminal Foundations

Today the Leitner Poma crew started pouring concrete for The Beavers Chairlift. They had, not only concrete trucks on site, they had a large pumper to push the concrete just where they needed it. Most of the concrete in lifts is buried. A huge part of any lift in underground. Just like the bottom of Lenawee Mountain Lift and the top of Zuma Lift, there will be two large, rectangular, concrete masses that support the two diagonal towers that hold up the motor room. Once the lift is finished, less 5% of the concrete is visible. There is a lot of concrete in this terminal. They also poured the footers for the lift operator building.

Next up, finish all the concrete work on the Summit, back fill all the concrete and start digging the tower holes.

Kudos to the driver to getting that cement truck safely up there.

There's a reason these are called the Rocky Mountains.
