Skiers Stranded on Chairlift for Hours
Minutes after Emma Claire Spring went on a chairlift at Whitefish Mountain Resort in Montana, it came to an abrupt stop. Spring and other guests were told the ski lift lost power and they would be evacuated soon. However, nearly two hours later, no one was evacuated. Spring was not alone. Molly Thibert also found herself trapped on the lift with her husband and two little boys. When the ski patrol finally showed up, her 6-year-old son was first to be lowered with a rope.
