Ski lift in Sochi Olympic resort taken out by tree

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
A ski lift at the Rosa Khutor resort, which will carry skiers taking part in the 2014 Winter Olympics, had to be closed on Sunday because a tree fell on it. According to the Russian emergency services, no one was hurt but 75 people had to be evacuated from the cable cars, which took about 2 hours....

The emergency services say the ski lift was shut down at 5:30 p.m. local time (1330 GMT) Sunday and it took rescuers nearly two hours to evacuate all 75 stranded passengers. The resort is due to host several Olympic test events in the next few weeks.

5:30 seems a bit late for an operating lift - would it not be dark then?
