BREAKING: New Chairlift At Whitefish Being Rope Evacuated


Whitefish Mountain Resort, MT posted about an hour ago (11AM MST) that they’re in the process of rope evacuating skiers from the new Chair 4-Snow Ghost Express.

Chair 4 is a six-pack chairlift that runs from the base to the top of Inspiration Ridge near the summit.

The screenshot of Whitefish’s Instagram Story is the only information we have so far:

If you or somebody you know were evacuated from Chair 4 today, please reach out to me matt@unofficialnetworks.com.

I’m also reaching out to Whitefish for a statement on what happened.

Stay tuned here at Unofficial Networks for all updates regarding this developing story.


Whitefish Mountain Resort has provided the following statement in regards to the Chair 4 evaccuation:

We really appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding today.

It’s been another tough day on the mountain with multiple chairlift stoppages, and we know it’s been a frustrating experience for many of our guests — on a pow day, of all days. Chair 2 didn’t run today, and we were forced to stop Chair 4 around 9:40 a.m. due to an unrelated mechanical issue. Out of consideration for guests’ safety and comfort, we again made the call to perform a rope evacuation and our dedicated ski patrollers sprang into action along with other resort staff. We also paused Chairs 7, 8 and 11 and the Bigfoot T-Bar so additional staff could assist with the evacuation. All guests were safely removed from the lift line by approximately 12:35 p.m. and we’re committed to trying to remedy their situations.

We’re still taking stock of what happened today and learning more lessons. For now we can promise this: We will keep working to provide the best service and value possible for everyone who skis and rides at Whitefish Mountain Resort.”
