Re: New Glencoe Chairlift
What's the timescale for installation, Andy? Is it planned to be spinning for the 16/17 or 17/18 season?
I share Cumbrianskihead's excitement, this is going to improve what is already a great resort.
Indeed, I am very excited and while I was going to come up to GC this year to do a week of volentry work (I dont know what they might give me to do, but im very adapt and happy to do re-fencing of hut painting while I see the chairlift being installed, but a 8 hour round trip doesn't quite work for me just to see the delivery of the chair.
For those that don't know I am a super-nerdy Ariel rope way gheek. The more vertical type of train spotter, you might say. A lifetime growing up with more holidays in the alps than Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has done this too me. Coupled with a love of the local ski hill of Raise in the lake district and the feeling that Scottish skiing is vital for the economy of Aviemore and Fort William alike, theres a wee spirit inside me that can't help but adore Glencoe's management style, not to mention the slightly bashful advanced purchase of the chair.
