Hello and good day. I will be moving nearby Mammoth in the near future and had a few questions for any lift techs that may happen to read this. I am currently an electrician in the utility field and was wanting to know if my skills would lay over to the lift field. Are they common controls and drives (motor starters/VFD's) like most motor circuitry or are they custom that require specific training?
Does it require a California License of any sort (journeyman/masters) to work on the lifts?
Is it a year-round job or seasonal? I have heard a lot of lifts also cater to mountain bikers in the off season?
Also, anyone know of employment opportunities in this area?
Thanks for any info.
