Slide at Hyak, lift tower(s) torn out. No injuries reported yet. Craven's place knocked off its foundation. I'll post pictures soon.

Is the tower damage bad, meaning they are likely closed for weeks / months?

Sorry, I hear the lift is very badly damaged, one or more supports were wiped out. Stack (my husband) says they'll surely be done for the season.

Misha,







Need an assessment if you can...I own all of the base area buildings...plus a condo at suncrest...any chance we can talk by phone...please call me directly on my cell XXX.XXX.XXXX. I appreciate any insight you can give me...if you have any chance to go to the base area...that would be huge!

Looks like we'll be taking the shuttle, or driving over to Silver Fir for the rest of the Season. Maybe one bright side is that this will accelerate the new High Speed Quad at Hyak?
