TRUCKEE — A chairlift at Northstar California Resort malfunctioned Sunday, causing several people to become stuck for a prolonged amount of time.
A representative from Northstar released a statement saying:
“Promised Land Express has resumed running at reduced speed to evacuate guests after rope evacuating a portion of guests. Northstar places the highest value on the safety of its guests and will confirm resolution of the issue before re-opening to the public.”
