The carriers (name for the actual "chairs") are being staged as I write. The rope is completely on and spliced. The lift has actually been spinning with the wire rope moving. This morning the Leitner Poma crew walked down the lift line, climbing towers and aligning all the sheave assemblies. By tomorrow morning they will start putting the carriers on the line. From the top of Black Mountain Express you will be able to look up and see carriers on the top couple of spans.

I kind of like the forecast starting Monday.
