Sunday River:: Blowin' things up on Spruce Peak

Sunday River will replace chairlift
The resort will spend $2.1 million to replace a lift that failed last summer.


Sunday River announced that it will spend $2.1 million on a triple-chairlift at the same location as the Spruce Peak Triple, which toppled over last summer when the foundation separated from the mountaintop following heavy rain.

No one was hurt because it happened when the lift was not in operation.

Officials say the new lift will use a conveyor system to make it easier for skiers to board, and it will be faster than the old one, taking skiers to the top in eight minutes. Construction begins in May.

The ski resort was without the lift during the past season
