132 evacuated from Sugarbush chairlift

Posted: Updated:

132 people had to be evacuated from a chairlift at Sugarbush on Saturday.

The Heavens Gate lift stopped working due to a broken piece of machinery, and ski patrol had to use a rope system to evacuate all of the skiers from the chairs, one at a time.

Mountain officials say it took two hours to get everyone down, and no injuries were reported.
