The chairlift at Mt Sima was affected by several electrical brownouts yesterday which caused the chairlift to stop for short periods throughout the day. A mid afternoon brownout was more severe resulting in the need for us to manually get people off the chairlift. National safety protocols were followed and the evacuation was completed in about 90 minutes. During this time, we continued to attempt to reset the lift computers and the lift was running again before everyone was evacuated from the chair.
Sima staff, in conjunction with Canadian Ski Patrol, were in frequent communication with those on the lift to reassure and inform of the evacuation measures. Unfortunately, one individual who attempted to get off the chair without the assistance of trained personnel was injured. For everyone's safety, we would like to remind everyone to listen to the ski patrol in these situations and wait for instructions as they are fully trained in safe evacuation procedures.
The lift is fully operable and Mt Sima will be open throughout the Christmas holidays with the exception of Christmas day. We will be continuing our investigation with ATCO and apologize for the interruption to those visitors yesterday to Mt Sima.
