Some guests at Northstar California spent a significant amount of their Sunday hanging around after a chairlift stalled.

The resort said the Promise Land Express lift stopped operating at approximately 10:41 a.m. leaving guests stranded for over three hours.

Ski patrol was able to evacuate six people by rope before resort staff got the lift running slowly at 1 p.m. and began unloading guests. By 2:45 p.m. the evacuation was completed successfully with no major injuries reported.

The lift is currently not operating. According to a press release from Northstar they are working to resolve the issue with Promised Land Express before re-opening it to the public.
