Just weeks after a serious accident – Sugarloaf has closed a second chairlift for the remainder of the season.
The Timberline lift was closed earlier this month after crews found the drive shaft had significant wear and tear. Seven skiers were injured last month after the King Pine chairlift suffered a malfunction that lead it to travel backward. That incident was caused when the drive shaft failed to stop the lift.
Both the King Pine and Timberline have a similar design.
