The wife and I were on Julie's, my son and his fiancee on Pacific Crest when the power went out @ 9:16AM, two very loud blasts from down the hill and everything came to a halt. They fired up the emergency generator and got us up to to the top, running at minimal speed. My son convinced the other people on the chair that they were hand-cranking the lift. I would have paid money to hear that conversation!
They got things running later in the afternoon, by then we were long gone.
