Progress, while it may feel like it’s slowing down due to the completion of trenching / ditching for waterline, is still full steam ahead.
TRENCHING COMPLETE –
Some of the more intensive and intrusive work is now complete; that is trenching / ditching to accommodate for the laying of snowmaking electrical and waterline. Crews have now completed installing waterline from the top of the Huckleberry Chairlift down Lone Ranger through to the base area as well as up the Whiskey Jack run on the main mountain.
Digging through the base area can be described as tedious at best. A number of utilities such as phone, water, sewer, and gas are already in the ground in the base which means great care has to be taken and progress is often quite slow. Work has now wrapped up in the base area with the majority of focus now devoted to our new pump house.
PUMP HOUSE BUILDING –
The foundation for our pump house building has been laid with the majority of focus now to be devoted to the completion of this building / installation of pumps, adjacent to the Huckleberry Reservoir. All of the required connections from the pump house into our underground waterline network have been made with additional concrete to be laid later this week.
HAIG CREEK INTAKE BUILDING –
A small building has been put together to serve as a shelter over the Haig Creek Intake, adjacent to Haig Creek. The building was built in the parking lot and will be moved into place later this week.
WHAT’S NEXT? –
Crews will continue working on finalizing the pump house structure with a number of pieces of pump house equipment due to arrive in the coming days / weeks.
