The bigger issue I think is how long did it take to evac the entire lift from when the code calling for the evac went out over the radio?
Under most circumstances, the industry target, if I recall correctly, is 90 minutes from when the call goes out for the evac, until the last guest on the lift is down.
Not sure in this case, if the mechanics spent a little extra time trying to get either the primary or auxillary back on line before the call for the evac went out or not?
And my buddy, that I mentioned before, showing how not to exit a chair.
I think that has to be one of the last Riblet chairlifts still actively running. And I imagine it will be gone soon.
