The new Charity Jane Express is located east of the Alberta Lift.
The Charity Jane Express is a Doppelmeyer high-speed, detachable quad.
The lift will service beginner terrain and will be another connecting lift for advanced skiers to get back to the bottom of Alberta and Elma Lifts.
The cement work began for the Charity Jane Express with the top tower pads being poured on 6.26.18.
Lift parts have been arriving and are being stored in the parking lots.
The top and bottom terminals of the Charity Jane Express, as well as the chairs, were delivered and unloaded in the parking lots the week of 6.25.18.
The terrain continues to get cleared with big equipment moving slash and dead trees.

The entire operation, lifts and buildings, came on line with the Penitente Solar Project, this November 2017 and will continue for many years into the future. The expected operational lifetime of the project is over 25 years... Full Press Release.
