New Powerline

There has been some heavy equipment on Wrangler and in the base area that is visible on the web cams. Xcel is replacing the powerline that runs from the A-Frame up to the bottom of Lenawee Mountain Lift. The old line  is 35+ years old and had a tendency to fail at the worst possible time. While projects like these are not a whole lot of fun, I am excited to see it almost completed. Those past power outages wreak havoc on ski area operations and create some very long work days and nights for people. This is good.
