I think I'd rather not have known about this... Glad to hear everyone made it out relatively okay though. I can't imagine being stuck for six hours.
yeah, I should have NOT looked at that pic!! Ive been on the gondola in mammoth in some really heavy winds (40-50mph?) At least what I
thought were heavy winds and was terrified! If it's windy I won't ride it alone, I will find a partially loaded car to ride up on. I find if Im with other people I can keep my shit together but I will cry like a girl if I am alone and it stops for wind hold while dangling over a big white nothingness
Ive been stuck on a chair lift on wind hold, swinging wildly for 4 songs on my iPod and I about lost it.....I saw ski patrol on a snowmobile headed towards us, as we were near a lift pole. I asked the person on the chair next to me "Are they coming to get us? Are we gonna have to rapel off this thing? or do we climb down the pole?!" Doh!
sigh...that person is probably posting in the "strange conversations on the chair" thread right now.
