The Nub’s Crew just completed load testing all of our chairlifts. In a load test buckets of water are placed on the chairs to simulate a fully loaded lift. With the lift loaded we test the brakes, safety circuits, and auxiliary power. The State of Michigan requires a load test once every five years, but at Nub’s Nob we test every lift every year. Chairlift safety is taken very seriously here, and you can rest assured that we are doing everything possible to make your trip uphill as safe and enjoyable as possible.
