Chairlift fault leaves skiers stranded

A MECHANICAL problem left skiers and snowboarders suspended on a chairlift for almost two hours in freezing temperatures above Aonach Mor at the weekend.

At 11.30am on Sunday January 7, the Quad chairlift at Nevis Range ski ground to a standstill. Dozens of people were left stranded almost 30 feet above the mountain in some of the coldest conditions at the ski resort this year, with temperatures dropping to -4 °Celsius. It took an engineering team until around 1pm to fully resolve the issue.
