Gerry, one of our new employees here for the season went (in his own words) 'from working with teenagers tackling life affected by childhood trauma to living a simple lift with the bare necessities amongst the snow'. Welcome to the team Gerry, we're glad to have you on board! Follow Gerry on Instagram at @gerrywhy.

Our professional lift maintenance team is hard at work taking the chairs off Gold and bringing the haul rope down, all in preparation for a splice needed on the haul rope so that we have the appropriate tension to run the lift with optimal safety.
