Five Suits Filed On Whistler Gondola Failure

by The Editors on April 9, 2010

When the Excalibur Gondola at Whistler-Blackcomb failed in December of 2008 it left at least 12 people tapped in dangling gondolas. Now, the legal ramifications of that afternoon are coming back to haunt the resort in the form of lawsuits according to CKNW Radio.

Two separate civil suits have been filed in BC Supreme Court on behalf of Whistler residents Christopher and Michelle Pond. . . This brings to 5 the number of suits against Intrawest and gondola manufacturer Doppelmayr. . . .The Ponds are making separate claims alleging they were injured when Tower 4 of the Excalibur collapsed sending several gondola’s to the ground, rooftops and trees.

Wonder if Intrawest have anything left after the Olympics?
