I would assume they couldn't use cranes. They may be able to piece together supports on the ground in the mean time?

Keep in mind that the webcam is right around 300 feet in the air. The fog may be clear enough closer to the ground, so they may be able to lift some pieces into place. Of course, it isn’t guaranteed that they are able to, but it’s a possibility.

True, the view from the MT cam looks pretty clear at this point and the hill they are working on currently is just a little bit taller than Mystic's lift hill.

I think that it depends upon how the sun hits them and how the camera then translates the image. Sometimes they look lighter, sometimes they are darker.

Also the triangle support just below your arrow looks like it is in place as well.

That hill before the helix is a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be.  The helix will probably be pretty massive, too.

Track work is now going down. The air time hill has been topped off.

There is no way this won't get done by the end of the month!

I’d call it 18% grey due to its ability to shift, picking up light contamination under most  lighting conditions. That and trying to keep Orion’s track the correct blue against any sky is a pain to deal with also.
