Marquette Mountain

Hi all.
It’s time for another bit of an update.
As you might imagine almost everything around here is getting a hard look and there’s been a lot of discovery. For instance the trees are starting to turn red and gold and we’ve had a bunch of inquiries about color tours of the mountain. Well this is one of those things that we discovered this year. You’ll recall we had a little issue with Rocket during Bike Fest in June. Some well meaning friend called the State Safety Inspector who sent a Lift Inspector to look at Rocket. Turns out to have been a good thing for a number of reasons because we learned a lot and have a plan to keep that issue from ever happening again. However we learned a couple other things and were reminded of some operating requirements that in the past several years hadn’t been followed. The first thing we learned was that our lifts cannot transport anyone other than skiers without restraint bars installed on our chairs. It’s a safety issue and an important regulation and we were never supposed to be putting people on the lifts without the restraints in place. Then there’s the issue of the lift design and capacity. Turns out the lifts were never designed to carry people downhill. We know it was done in the past but shouldn’t have been. In fact when the lifts were installed they were specifically certified not to carry people down the mountain. So, that put an end to running the lifts for weddings and sadly fall color tours. If we had the restrains installed now we could take you up on the mountain but you’d have to walk down. The good news is that now that we know about the restraint requirement we’ll get that done in time for biking next spring! And once we’ve done that skiing will be safer too. Oh, the other thing about getting up on the mountain this fall is that there’s a lot going on up there. Trenches being dug, poles being dragged up and getting installed, conduit and wire all over the place and heavy equipment running everywhere. Add to that our regular maintenance activities to get ready for snow season and it’s pretty busy up there. Not a lot of peace and quiet on the mountain. This too will change. In a few months we’ll be gathered up on the flat at Midway watching soft snowflakes fall and all this mayhem will be a distant memory. In the meantime the burgers are great and the beer is COLD at the Saloon. We’d love to have you stop by.

I love reading about your updates! Bring on the snow!

Love that positivity !!

And don’t forget $2 draft beer of the day!

Werent followed??? Funny how state inspectors didnt have any issues in the past with our seat belt restraints that we always use. And the issue on no down hill riders, if u look at the spects on chair 1 it says 1 out of every 3 chairs can be loaded, chair 3 is maintenance only and I believe chair 2 is 1 out of every 5 can be loaded.

It’s best that all the issues are addressed. This place means a lot to a lot of people. Fix what needs to be fixed. Change what needs to be changed and plan ahead for many years. We are behind you in whatever you have to do. Marquette Mountain has been good to us and if Pete is willing to fix it up, we support him 1,000,001 % 👍🏾🎅🏾

Anything new for the terrain park?

Glad you've got it figured out now. But thats very scary and alarming that the lift was being run wrong and unsafe for so long!

We sincerely appreciate all you are doing! Your time efforts, & energy are greatly valued! Thanx!

Will rocket lift be made any safer? My son got his arm caught in the chair last year and thankfully was not hurt worse.

Good news. A lot of angst and some really great accommodation from the engineers and the two offending poles will be move east to the trees above the pond. You’ll lose some of the light but that’s always been a dimmer spot anyway. Moving on.

Hey I’m just glad you guys care about everyone’s safety and are trying to do what is right. A lot of us have young kids that we are trying to teach how to ski.
