Description

This image shows local artist Parker Hall holding up a sign he created to direct skiers not to unload from the T-bar anywhere but the top.

This sign was needed because the T-bar had been derailed from its rigging due to racers jumping off before the designated unloading place. This happened because when the skiers would jump off the T-bars would swing when let go and catch the next tower.
