“Breckenridge Ski Resort apologizes for any inconvenience to its guests,” the resort said in the statement. “The resort places the highest value on the safety of its guests and will confirm resolution of the issue before re-opening the Quicksilver SuperChair to the public.”

Breckenridge had a bit of a hangup over the weekend when the Quicksilver SuperChair stopped working after a power outage around 12:30pm. Summit Daily reports Ski Patrol started rescuing skiers and snowboards after about an hour of trying to get the chairlift back running. They evacuated guests from six-person chairs via ropes. After about 30 minutes of rope-line evacuations, maintenance got the Quicksilver SuperChair spinning and the remainder of the guests were unloaded at the top station. Everyone was offloaded by 2:22 p.m. and no one was injured in the process.
