Helicopters fly in lift parts

Crews building Park City Mountain Resort’s Crescent lift are scheduled to use helicopters on Thursday and Friday to fly in concrete forms that are part of the lift towers’ base.

Paula Fabel, a spokeswoman for the resort, estimated they were scheduled to be flying from about 8:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. on the two days.

Helicopters have been heard repeatedly Thursday morning in Prospector, which sits just east of the resort. PCMR will likely use helicopters to install the lift towers later, but a schedule was not immediately available.

The resort plans to open the Crescent lift for the 2008-2009 season. It will be a four-passenger, high-speed lift. It replaces the Ski Team lift.
