On Wednesday, at approximately 2:12 pm, Après Vous High Speed Quad became inoperable due to a mechanical issue.  Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Lift Maintenance staff quickly diagnosed the problem as a gearbox issue, and asked Ski Patrol to initiate preparations for an evacuation.

At 2:39 pm Ski Patrol started the rope evacuation of the guests on the lift.  The evacuation process lasted until approximately 4:03 pm, at which time all forty guests were safely off the lift.
