Turoa avalanche update
MT RUAPEHU 7 AUGUST 2018: High Noon Express Progress Update from Ross Copland, Chief Executive of skifield operator Ruapehu Alpine Lifts (RAL).
Today the team working on site at Turoa will pull the tower back into an upright position to allow the rope to turn. Two diggers arrived on site last night and the Doppelmayr team are installing rigging equipment. Once the tower is upright the chairs will be put back into the storage garage at the drive station. Work is now underway fabricating a new tower to replace the damaged one.
