Photos: A long haul

Posted: Friday, June 12, 2009

Haul to the top: Danny Johnson of Outback Construction of Ashland, Ore., prepares a winch Thursday to pull the new mid-mountain chairlift's haul rope to the top. The chairlift could allow the ski area to open earlier in the season and better handle high capacity days.

High work: Tony Emerson, top, and George McGuan of Arete Construction hang a sling while preparing to pull the new mid-mountain haul rope to the top. If all goes as planned, the rope will be installed by the weekend and the mountain will reopen to hikers on Monday.
