Kirkwood Chairlift Damaged By High Winds

Kirkwood Mountain Resort posted a photo earlier this morning showing that Chair 6 was damaged by high winds yesterday.

It appears that metal and glass on the chairlift’s upper terminal was ripped completely off.

Check out the image below:

The chairlift will be closed for maintenance with no estimated time of reopening.

Kirkwood has seen 376 inches inches this season, but the storms have brought strong winds.

We’ve seen lift closures and delays at Kirkwood, and at ski resorts across the Lake Tahoe region, throughout the season.

Let this serve as another friendly reminder that wind holds are for everybody’s safety.
