Thank you to everyone who purchased a Pucci chair! We sold out in a matter of hours with 80% of the proceeds going to charity.
Dear Pucci Chair Recipients,
As many of you know, COVID-19 has forced the suspension of Timberline operations for an undetermined amount of time. The crushing effects on our employees and business continuity cannot be understated. There is a plan to ramp up when the time is right and a genuine intention to offer a late spring skiing experience. Part of this plan also includes evaluating and prioritizing capital projects such as chairlift replacements.
None of us are in this alone. Doppelmayr, our chairlift supplier for the new Pucci, is also in a state of uncertainty around delivering on projects such as the Pucci replacement scheduled for summer 2020.
We would like nothing more than to bring back our mountain operations team as soon as possible, get the lifts running, prepare for our summer snow program on Palmer and begin construction on a new chairlift. Unfortunately today, there is simply too much uncertainty in business continuity and the supply chain to tell you construction will begin this summer.
Your chairs will not be available for pick-up in April. If we are able to begin construction on the new Pucci this summer, we will provide pick-up details at that time. If we are not able to begin construction this summer, your Pucci chairs will live another year at Timberline and will be available for pick-up in spring of 2021.
Timberline cannot thank you enough for your support and the donations you made to the Mount Hood Cultural Center and Museum and the Friends of Timberline. Please stay tuned for updates, stay well and stay home. We look forward to seeing everyone back on Mt. Hood when the time is right.
We successfully raised $17,600 each for Friends of Timberline and the Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Museum.
All chairs must be picked up in mid-April. The exact dates are to be determined based on how quickly our lift ops team is able to dismantle the lift, but we will allot a 2-3 day period encompassing a weekend in April. Chairs that aren’t retrieved at that time will be resold. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate specific chair number requests. Charitable donation tax letters will be given to buyers at time of pick-up.
