TV report this AM says that a malfunction at the top bullwheel resulted in the evacuation (ropes) of 27 people from one of their chairlifts last night. No one hurt.

    There have been several lift problems so far this season. It seems more than normal. Speaking of lifts, did Tenney's pass inspection?

    By their FB posts the haul rope on the Hornet passed inspection and the chairs are going back on with the ones out for NDT supposedly on their way back. There was a reply on there that they are shooting for an opening from somewhere between the 21st and 26th, depending on the Underwriters...

    Win Smith of Sugarbush posted on AZ about a lift evacuation around Christmas. Said ice at the top bullwheel was causing some spacing issues. Edit: December 23rd.
