Crews have started the work to replace the iconic Gatlinburg Sky Lift. Helicopters began bringing in concrete parts to rebuild structures as part of the Gatlinburg Sky Lift. The Sky Lift closed after damage sustained by wildfires last November.
“Helicopters started removing the existing towers from the hillside attraction on Monday, and began flying in concrete for the new chair lift Tuesday. ”
Watson said things are going smooth thus far and is hopeful that the lift will be open by the end of April.
“We’re right on time, and we’re all just working together to do the best we can to get the lift spinning as soon as we can,” said Watson.”
