Woman spends the night on Heavenly Gondola
A foreign tourist named Monica Lazo came to South Lake Tahoe’s Heavenly Mountain Resort this week and planned to snowboard with several of her friends on Thursday, January 25th. Being a less experienced snowboarder, Monica fell behind at some point in the day, and got separated from her friends.
Just before 5pm, Monica reportedly boarded the top station of Heavenly Mountain’s gondola, intending to ride back down to the village, only for the gondola to stop shortly after she boarded, where she was subsequently stuck for the next 15 hours and not able to get off until the ski lift was started again on the morning of the 26th.
