Vail Ski Resort re-opened one of its gondolas after it was evacuated last week due to some issues. A picture appears to show bolts coming loose on one of the towers. Around 70 people were evacuated on July 3 from the Eagle Bahn Gondola all of whom are employees at the ski resort. Everyone got evacuated safely.


Resort officials tell Vail Daily that there was a problem with “certain bolts” on a lift tower. The gondola stopped after a safety monitoring system detected the issue with the bolts on last Wednesday.
