Trapped in (well near) Paradise

I am not going to make excuses for playing hookey today after working day and night, seven days a week for few years trying to learn .NET. So I played hookey today. Yesterday was notably one of the best ski days ever at Mad River Glen as reported by many many locals who have skiid there for years. So we went today since it is only 7.5 miles from our house to the parking lot :-). Got right on the [famous, landmark] single chair to go up to the top and ski the absolutely magical Antelope and Lower Antelope. Just past the mid-station, the lift stopped. I was about 25 feet in the air. It was probably about 20 degrees. Two and a half hours later, I was lowered down from the chair lift. Something had broken and they had to evacuate everyone on the entire chair lift. I was the 2nd to last person off. Brrrrr. So much for a play day. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to get us all safely down.
