LMS Logo REDThe first Lift Maintenance Seminar (LMS) was held in 1978 at Ski Butternut in Great Barrington, MA, and was organized by Dave Kenny, who worked for the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety. For more than 40 years LMS has offered a wide variety of ski lift related educational sessions and has trained countless numbers of lift maintenance personnel.  Over the past several years seminar topics have expanded to include slope mainteance, snowmaking and grooming.  This annual event typically attracts more than 350 attendees from 80 +/- ski areas and supplier companies from across the US.


The next LMS will be held April 13-16, 2020, at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, in Hancock, MA.
