King Pine: Information to date
The primary reason we've created this site is to keep you informed of everything we are doing in regards to lift maintenance and lift safety, in the wake of last winter's accident on the King Pine lift.
King Pine experienced a roll back on Saturday, March 21, 2015 resulting in an evacuation of the lift, and immediate closure pending an investigation into the accident.
An investigation into the incident found that a fracture of the main drive shaft of the lift's secondary gearbox initiated the rollback, and that an apparent manufacturer design flaw in one of the lift's alternative braking components was contributory to the accident.
