Power outage a challenge at Silver Star

Resort has been using backup generators to ensure services continue Monday morning

The power has been on and off at Silver Star Mountain Resort Monday.

Issues with the electricity began developing early in the morning and it has meant backup diesel generators have been needed to keep chairlifts operating.

“The challenge for us was using computers for tickets,” said Anne Haight, director of sales and marketing.

A generator was set up to provide temporary power to the ticket office.

“Once people were aware of the issues, they were OK and patient,” said Haight.

The cause of the outage is unknown.
