Incident overview

A carrier fell to the snow when entering a compression tower sheave assembly on the downhill side of a ropeway. During inspection, it was observed that the chair swing guide was out of alignment causing the grip horn to miss the bullwheel flange and supplying enough force to partially pry the grip off the haul rope.
