I spent this Sunday morning at Hyak (the gladed runs are great when the other places are crowded on a powder day). While standing there during a routine 15 minute chair breakdown of Keechelus, my brother and I were discussing that other purple/pink chair on the East side of the mountain. Rumors were abound and we were told the brake snapped in 1976 and started going backwards, throwing people from the lift. It has never run since. I love urband legends as much as the next guy, but can anybody link me to the true story?
