That was fascinating. At first i was thinking, thats not too bad....until they started climbing up on top!
Great views, and thats gotta be cold out there!
The entertaining part was at around 3:50 the hammer strikes and the music were in sync. Good soundtrack, in case anyone wonders, its The Glitch Mob.

Wonder how long it took someone to think of just the right song for the synchro?

How often do those get that iced up?

It depends on the field and the weather patterns, I believe. Somewhere like Mt Ruapehu in NZ will de-ice daily at points in the season, and they often have to do it during snowstorms as well to keep the lifts safe. They frequently have lifts that open slightly late due to de-icing, and are known to have very bad rime ice.

That is something else! It's one of those things that I guess has to be done, but has never crossed my mind to wonder how.
