80 Stranded When Ski Lift Fails

  • That's probably not what we meant by "stuck on a ski lift," but whatever.

A ski lift at Alpine Valley in Munson Township had a little hiccup Saturday afternoon and stranded 80 people dangling on their chairs about 30 feet above the ground for three hours until authorities could wrangle them down.

No one was injured, but chances are the experience still sucked.

The AP quoted a fire chief as saying, "They’re a little cold. They were dressed to be skiing and moving around, not to be hanging 30 feet in the air.” Which begs the question: how do you dress to be hanging 30 feet in the air?
