Advisory: Skiing accidents

A 35-year-old chairlift set for upgrades or replacement failed Tuesday at one of Maine's most popular ski resorts, Sugarloaf, sending skiers plummeting into ungroomed snow below. Six people were taken to hospitals after five chairs fell. At the time, high winds were buffeting Maine a day after a blizzard swept across the region. The accident came days after a 5-year-old girl and 23-year-old snowboarder were killed in a collision on the slopes in Casper Mountain, Wyo., in the Hogadon Ski Area.
