Chairlift Terminal at Sun Valley Burns

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

The upper terminal of Flying Squirrel, an old Stadelli backup double that usually doesn't run, burned Friday night. The lift is pretty much toast.

 

The terminal is actually a building where the chairs unload in a cutout in the building.

 

There has been no cause announced, however it was stated that the building also contains snowmaking compressors and cell phone tower equiment, therefore some sort of equipment malfunction seem a possibility.

 

Here is a crappy cellphone pic.

Judging by the rest of the picture, I guess the snowmaking equipment was not in use.

Snow looks better than Tahoe though

I never took it but it sounded...interesting. There are quite a few comments on the SV Facebook page. Here's the photo they are running, remembering it in better days.

Looks like its time for an upgrade.
