Footage from Mad River Glen, VT of people being evacuated off the single chair lift.

Official Statement from MRG:
On Monday we encountered a technical problem on the single chair. There was a guide sheave failure in the drive terminal. A bolt stripped out of the cross arm which allowed the guide sheave to drop out of alignment causing the lift to shut down. The Doppelmayr/Ctec technician and our montain ops staff fixed the problem overnight and we will be ready to go this morning. The MRG ski patrol, staff, and volunteers helped to quickly evacuate the lift. Thanks to everyone who helped to make the evacuation go so smoothly. Thanks also to Nate, Kenny and Jamey for spending the night to ensure that the old girl was up and running for skiing this morning.
