New lift installation at Middlebury Snowbowl

Just received these shots of the new Doppelmayr CTEC fixed-grip triple chair going in at Middlebury Snow Bowl. It's the only new chairlift project in Vermont this season.

The lift replaces the 40-year-old Worth Mountain chair, which was a double chair, at a cost of about $1.7 million. The old chair either had to be refurbished or replaced—and Middlebury College decided to invest in a replacement lift.
