    Did anyone survive? Did they get a free hot beverage for their trouble?

    Wow. How does that happen? I'm sure most areas have shutdown procedures. And patrol usually sweeps the hills after last chair. Granted, he could have been above an area that wasn't near a trail.

    I have no firsthand knowledge of the procedures that a lift operator follows, but if it were me, I'd decide which was last chair and then not let anyone else on the lift and run the lift until that chair came back around. Sounds pretty simple to me.

    A lot of areas put a cone on the last chair and don't let anyone on after that then they shut it down when the cone gets to the top or when the upper liftie gets down after the cone makes it to the top.

    I've seen a sign used "Last Chair" lifty on top removes it .

    Some "Yacht Music " might have saved him .

    750,000$ for 5 hours on the killington gondola

    Overnight would have to be more.
    But Killington is ran by a big corporation who had already pissed everyone off. There reputation for screwing the lifetime pass holders, and running Killington on the Cheep may have hurt there case.

    Over/Under on this being an elaborate hoax?

    I'm going to be a bit objective and set the opening line at E.

    This was not the worst ski movie, but the worst movie ever. Watched DVD, fell asleep and there were 3 people on lift, woke up and there were only 2. Missed the coyote scene - and then I think we stopped movie.



    Whenever i I dress for skiing I dress for being stuck 30 mins on ski chair. Works pretty well - but not for a night - that would be miserable. Kids sometimes take my advice, was good when I could dress them myself - always worry about my little one being cold - he refuses to wear a neck gator - no matter the wind or cold. Pisses me off lol.
