In my grad program, we’ve been following the Heavenly vs. environmental groups fight for a few weeks (I know we’re a bit late to the game, seeing as it’s been going on for a few years now). On Saturday, Heavenly’s gondolas were shut down for over two hours due to an “electrical malfunction.” Two and a half hours is a long time in one of those babies. And then there are the people at the top who can’t get back to the bottom. All in all, this isn’t a good thing to be involved in, and Heavenly had to deal with it. If you’re interested in the master plan, TRPA will be re-hearing testimony on April 25.
