Today is the day we have been all waiting for, the Sunburst Six will begin operation to our skiers and riders.
Words can’t describe how proud all of us here at Okemo are of the new Sunburst Six. Our staff has been so committed to making this lift project their #1 commitment this past summer. To give you a feel for the time frame, consider this:
- Some tree cutting on the line began on July 1
- Concrete forms were begun to be made on July 7th
- Work began in earnest on the project on July 14th.
During this time, there were over 50 Okemo employees who worked on the project, along with numerous contractors who worked on different phases of the project. Okemo also had a very close working relationship with the lift manufacturer. Leitner-POMA of America has been a real partner with Okemo on this project and has met many obstacles and challenges with a can-do attitude.
All of us here at Okemo are very proud of this newest addition to our lift system, and we cannot thank enough the hard work of all the Mountain Operations staff and Okemo Team members, as well as the unwavering support from all of our dedicated and loyal Okemo skiers and riders. Enjoy the ride, and we will get those seat heaters going soon enough!
