SUN PEAKS — Onlookers watched today (Dec. 2) as helicopters flew in the towers for Sun Peaks Resort's newest chair lift, the Orient.

Outlined in a release from the resort, the new chair lift in the East Village area is expected to open in time for Christmas.

The addition will boost access to the main village core for skiers, along with providing new runs to previously under-utilized terrain.

With 30cm of snow coming down over the past week, putting the towers in place had been delayed slightly as they had to wait for better flying conditions for the helicopters.

A map of the runs can be found here.
