Yep 03/10 at 4:45 PM Chair 6 permanently down for the count. 

 

Good news is we get a fixed gripped High Speed double this summer

 

CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN, Wash. — An avalanche destroyed the bottom terminal and towers on High Campbell chairlift at Crystal Mountain, the resort said Monday.

“Huge avalanche takes out bottom of High Campbell chairlift,” the resort announced on its Facebook page.  “It was triggered by an explosive on the throne around 4:45 pm. The area was closed and nobody was hurt.

“We are taking the instability in the snowpack very seriously and will continue to mitigate risk and close terrain as necessary.”

Later, the resort added, “Just be thankful no one was hurt and that our ski patrol is looking after our safety. We plan to build a new lift this summer similar to the Northway chair.”

Amazing ... 3 weeks ago I was at Crystal and told "absolutely no demo skis on lift 6 - not enough snow"  So much for that.
