    I think it's fairly obvious he did it, and is trying to throw us off the trail.

    Every time one these Thermite ideas pops up I have a feeling I am reading from a lobotomized author

    Now if someone set a cutting Torch ,and left the scene it is possible to cut

    No freaking way some one was near it when it was cut... Any person who knows what it takes to cut a line like that, would never be within 300 yards of it snapping

    Additionally, The Sun has previously been witnessed to enlist the aid of more distant, but no less sympathetic, stars in its campaign of destabilization and chaos. Similar to The Moon, these outside antagonists routinely perform wetwork under the cover of nightfall, and may possibly share responsibility for the attack in question.
    You leave the moonies out of this.

    Until the authorities and pure gravity figure this thing out and tell the public what really happened, Id advise everyone to not use any gondola or chairlifts this winter in protest and for our own safety.

    This whole situation stinks, its like an onion. When you peel it sometimes your eyes water a little because the stink stings. But once you get past that and saut them bitches up, mmm mm they go great on a burger.

    LOL. Thanks Apparently, mixing Adderall and Acid, while watching MythBusters is a bad recipe for dry tongue, eventual vitamin deficiencies and ...

    But on the lightning front ... Ha!

    I suppose this is rare. However, lightning does strike non-grounded objects beside grounded objects, even not-the-nearest objects, and a haul line going 2,000 feet from sea level to mountain alpine might be seen as a good shortcut to home.

    Like the report below, the danger is actually from minute flaws in the rope, fused wires, maybe a melted plastic core in one spot, that might, just might, however implausible unless on an Adderall and Acid tripp, cause a future problem.

    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    I'll only be riding on cloudy days from now on. Shouldn't affect things much here in the PNW.

    So you've never used a cutting torch, then it's ok to sound dumb

    How could adding 10 gondolas compromise the rope or contribute to this in any way?

    You see, by adding the 10 newly-forged gondolas to the cable, the total weight of the entire system was thrown out of balance. The great gondola lift of Squamish had now become too powerful in it's ability to transport even the heaviest North American up the mountainside. And when the system was thrown off balance, the great spirit of the lift became poisoned. Our Mother Earth sensed this great upsetting of the cables, and thus gathered storm clouds from across the ocean to it's shore. Upon that night, a great front brewed in opposition against this machination of man. The wind rushed forth onto the mountain, and the fury of the heavens wrought destruction along the mountainside. With one final burst, the steel cables that had borne many a-traveler came crashing down. Sounds of destruction echoed across the valley, and to the people of Squamish it was audible evidence that something terrible had happened on that fateful night.

    Amen.

    It is starting to sink in. There are scummy people that do these sorts of things.

    For whatever reason, it is unconscionable to disrupt and possibly harm people for what amounts to a small slice of land up a mountain - especially in a place like Canada where 99% of the land is wild and untouched.

    I'm really surprised actually - they even got Ed Cooper, one of the first two to climb the Squamish Chief on a petition, claiming that the 20 meter wide track of land up the mountain is an 'atrocity'.

    https://friendsofthesquamishchief.wo.../your-stories/

    I g.e.t. i.t. ... some people want everything wild and free - but they still want their cars and all.
    They live in nice houses ... and complain about frog habitats and yet they wouldn't lift a finger to do any actual remediation in nature.
    All the while, other people want jobs and improvements, they even live in the wilderness and appreciate it daily, and this is the LEAST of their concerns.

    I'll say, this is NOT an atrocity. Jews being killed by the millions for no reason, that is an atrocity.
    A gondola up a mountainside on the perimeter of a town ...
    that's a tourism business.

    It is crazy really.
    I hope they catch the perp(s).
    Motherfuckers.
