Building Swift Current 6
Dynamic Load Test
Swift Current 6 has passed its dynamic load test and can officially begin loading skiers and snowboarders. The load test ensures that the lift can safely carry riders in different situations. For the test, 108 of the 126 bubble chairs were loaded with 60,000 lbs of water as additional weight. The lift was then able to run the chair's max speed of 6 meters/second both forward and in reverse.
With the load test complete, we're excited to welcome guests to ride the new Swift Current 6 lift on opening day, November 25th.
LED Screen Install
The digital LED screen at Swift Current's bottom terminal has been installed. The screen consists of small panels that are stitched together to create a seamless display. As with the screen on Ramcharger 8's lower terminal, the screen will be used to display up-to-date information on weather, snowfall, lift status, other alerts, and promotional content.
