Pajarito Ski Area reopens Aspen lift

News

Pajarito Mountain Ski Area opened a ski lift that stranded skiers for hours on opening day. 

It was a dramatic scene when more than 180 people were left with no option but to rappel down the Aspen lift. 

They said it was one of the first lifts running that day. 

Officials say the Aspen lift had been working all summer without any issues but suffered mechanical problems that day.
