Huge Avalanche Takes out Lift at Crystal Mountain

I spotted a report on Crystal Mountains Facebook page that a huge avalanche took out an entire lift on the mountain yesterday. According to a post on the Crystal Mountain Web site

Huge avalanche takes out bottom of High Campbell chairlift. 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.

Here’s the latest update from their web site:

As you may know by now, an avalanche destroyed the bottom terminal and towers of the High Campbell lift today. A lot of you are asking about getting on the list to buy one of these chairs, we will announce a plan for this soon so please stay tuned. In the meantime, 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.

Here are more photo’s from Crystal Mountains Facebook Page.
