“There was a warrant issued for his arrest on May 28.” That was two weeks ago. Why hasn't he been arrested?
Why don't the police make the names and addresses of the perpetrators public, and I'm sure a few good citizens of Missoula will open up a can of frontier justice, ensuring they never even consider assaulting anyone else ever again!
Jrob, they don't "decide" to close it. It just breaks down, all the time, year after year, because they have just been too f-in cheap to replace the motor or whatever it is they need to do. its only a matter of time til there is a serious accident on the Griz chair.
Right on! I've skied all over the world, and Snowbowl is the only mtn I know where lift breakdowns and even skier evacuations are a routine part of lift operations. When a chairlift breaks down that often, you really have to question the integrity and safety of the equipment.
Also, a 12 minute chairlift ride can be cold enough-- getting stuck on one for an hour or longer can be downright dangerous, especially for kids.
Bottom line--Snowbowl need to ante up and fix this thing for good and for real-- not just McGyver it each season. I know they have the money because they have been raising lift ticket prices an average of 5 percent a yr, when inflation has only been about 1-2 percent. They need to make lift operations safe for skiers!
