Mt. Hood Meadows evacuates skiers, boarders from chairlift
PORTLAND, Ore. — Mt. Hood Meadows ski resort staff evacuated people from a chairlift after a power problem prompted the resort to shut down the lift. The Oregonian reports a resort spokesperson said "power fluctuations" on the resort's Blue chairlift Wednesday prompted the resort southeast or Portland to switch to auxiliary power. Officials say it wasn't enough to power the already-occupied lift.
