People recommend the Alps? I recommend Lebanon and its snow! Mechwar (The Journey) begins now! Anthony: Halim, what are people unaware of? People are not aware of what is involved in starting our 6 chair lifts. 6 slopes to be opened The team begins from around 4 am. They climb each individual tower. They clean all the bearings as they are usually frozen. This is done so that the bearings turn when the cable begins moving. After cleaning the bearings, they test the electrical mains to ensure that any lightning strikes did not cause damage to the connections. They then attempt to start the chair lifts. The chairs begin to move, and here is where we need to remove the snow from each chair so that people can use them. You told me that it snowed 20 cm last night. The snow is rock solid so you’ll need to remove it. All needs to be cleaned. You left at 4 am and then returned at 6 am to complete the process. Saliba, we are ready, you can start if you like.
