continued In addition to the new lift and race building, Martin plans on finishing a new, 2.5-kilometer multi-use trail network on the mountain’s west side.
“That’ll be this season and I’ll start cutting in the next couple weeks,” he said.
Natalie LeDuc has helped lead the charge in raising funds for the new lift. She’s skied at Pisgah for much of her life, coached youngsters there, and watched numerous Olympians – including her brother – get their start on the tiny, but popular, ski hill.
She was trimming hedges around the base lodge when the new steel arrived this week.
“It’s amazing, just amazing,” LeDuc said. “I was here when the last lift came in, so it’s really been something to see. I’m very, very proud and very pleased.”
