Kirkwood shut down Cornice Express today after the lift was derailed by an airbag.
At about 1:30 PM Saturday April 7th, the giant blue airbag was carried away from its mooring and sent towards nearby chairlifts. The bag barely missed chair five but hit chair six, Cornice Express. One chair reportedly went twirling from the impact with a woman and young child aboard.
The evacuation took approximately two hours according to Kirkwood Mountain Resorts Facebook account of the incident.
No injuries were reported from the accident.
