I have to believe they put up some surveillance cameras after the 1st incident. Does seem like an inside job (current or past employee). Strange stuff, for sure.

As for the cause, it's mysterious. There are millions of causes. My first guess would have to be some sort of eco-terrorism, something like what happened at Vail in '98, especially considering the west coast is experiencing an environmental crisis with the wildfires.
I think their insurance company would INSIST on that going forward.
Would those car accidents have been the direct result of illegal sabotage? If not, then you are comparing apples to Guava fruit. I would think their insurance would be a bit more involved in the criminal investigation and prosecution this go around. The lift company did install high tech sensors and cameras after the rebuild (most likely required by the insurance carrier since the first event went unsolved). The only other thing they could really do differently this rebuild would be to remove cabins each night to preserve that part of the asset. But given this wasn't negligence on the operator's part, can't see them not being able to get insurance moving forward.How hard is it going to be for them to get coverage at this point? I don't know much about business insurance, but I'm pretty sure that I'd have a tough time getting car insurance with a pair of near-max-value claims in under 18 months.
