We had over 1,000 people take a ride on the lift yesterday to check out the best colors in years. I know many of you were unable to get your ride in due to the lighting that approached at the end of the day.
When lightning comes into the area, we must unload the lift as soon as possible and count 30 minutes until we can load again. So when we hear thunder, we start our watch. If we hear more we start over. As soon as we can count 30 minutes without any strikes nearby we will load the lift again. Who wants to be on a big metal thing with lightning in the area? Not me.
But we apologize to any of you that were turned away. Safety first!
