Chairlifts are incredibly complex machines, it's not hard for something to go wrong and things often do. And we don't even know what went wrong here yet so don't be too fast to judge them. They didn't have to come clean about it but they did anyways and that deserve props. Whistler sees themselves as being accountable for everything that happens at that resort so it's really cool that they told us.
I knew a guy who went through a training course with Dopplemayr to be a millwright up at Whistler and maintain the lifts. I read one of his books on detachable lift systems and i've honestly had an easier time reading a textbook on Quantum Physics or Organic Chemistry.
