Some Cool Helicopter Tower Removal Action From Sun Valley, ID -- VIDEO

Getting to see the helicopter work when a lift is being taken down or put up is very cool. To see it in person is the coolest, but to catch some video of it happening is pretty cool, too. In this case, Sun Valley in Idaho posted some video of the recent helicopter work done to remove a lift that is being replaced with a better lift as part of their Bald Mountain Expansion.

"Slated for completion in the Fall of 2020, a new high-speed detachable quad by Dopplemeyer will replace the resort’s oldest chairlift, Cold Springs (#4). The expansion, adding 380-plus acres of exciting new terrain, includes lengthening the gradually pitched and oh so smooth Lower Broadway Run, adding 25 highly efficient snowmaking guns and opening up some of Baldy’s best terrain, including a great wide-open bowl and extensive tree skiing.

The new lift, rising 1582 vertical feet in just over a mile, will provide a seamless transition from the base of Cold Springs to the Roundhouse Restaurant, Roundhouse Express Gondola, and Christmas chairlift (#3)."
