Before the old cable can be swapped for the new, the entire apparatus has to be chained off and secured so the weight does not free fall.
Then the new cable is threaded in the grooves as the old cable is slowly pulled out.
Once the new cable is in place, all the stabilizers are released and everything gets inspected for safety.

Hey, I admit it.
Well, probably because our kids finally have this great place to practice, show off,
and have a blast.
And one of the leaders in the effort to bring the community this great place...
Jack and the gang at No Comply not only worked countless hours on this project,
but they also made it a great party yesterday by
sponsoring a competition,
providing complete skateboards as prizes,
and throwing cool loot like stickers, hats and shades into the crowds.
BV staff looks forward to working with No Comply again this year
to inspire us with new ideas for our Terrain Park.
No Comply will also be at our Open House on November 13th
with their new snow gear for the season.
Stop by and say HI!
On October 30th the BVSP held its annual OEC Refresher Course. Patrollers reviewed injury scenarios and learned the latest info concerning CPR and Airway Management.
Our Buena Vista community is fortunate that such a committed group of women and men participate in our locally organized National Ski Patrol. Many hours are invested in continuing education to ensure that qualified medical care can be administered in the case of an emergency or injury.
In addition to medical preparation and working on the Patrol Building, our BVSP has a community service project up its sleeve. I'll share the details of that project as soon as they are finalized.
