Skiers waiting for evacuation as Mitarbi ropeway stops working

Mitarbi ropeway has been halted for almost an hour in Bakuriani. According to the Mountain Development Company, the above was caused by a technical, power-related problem. According to them, rescuers are working to evacuate passengers.

According to one of the skiers, rescuers have not started evacuation yet.

As the skier told InterpressNews, they do not know how long they will have to stay on the ropeway.

"About 10 minutes ago it was announced that the rescue service would start evacuating us, but apart from the fact that we saw 2 rescue workers driving a ferry, we have not seen anything else. The ski lift has stopped about an hour ago and no one knows how long we will have to stay here,” said the vacationer.
