The power outage to all of Sugarloaf’s lifts above the Sawduster chair lasted for two hours, although Sugarloaf spokesperson Ethan Austin says that a transfer to auxiliary power got all passengers off the chairlifts within 10 minutes. Four open lifts were unaffected.

Sugarloaf crews and Central Maine Power workers restored power to all of the resort’s lifts by 1:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
