Regulated industry sector: Passenger ropeways – Above surface ropeway
Damage occurred to the top return station bull wheel assembly of a chairlift. After investigation, it was observed that there was no drain hole that would allow water to escape. The water accumulated at the bottom of this axel leading to freezing and ice jacking conditions of the structure.
