How do they get the cable to the site of a ski lift?
Some ski lifts cover a distance of a couple of miles of so - meaning that there is about 4 miles of cable without a break. Surely no lorry could carry all that cable?
The cable is actually brought in pieces and spliced together.
It comes on spools, and it is unraveled directly onto the pullies, strung up, and when spool 1 runs out, they spice it onto spool two.
The splice usually happens over 10-20 feet, so you dont really see the break because it is raveled up in the cable.
