RB-058 Skiers in the Sky

Mile High Ski Lodge has one of the most challenging and dangerous ski runs in all of the Rockies. Top skiers from all around the country come to Mile High to try their skills against the mountain. The only way to get to the top is by ski lift, a cable car held up by 8 support cables and one power cable. With 30 passengers on board, the car's power cable brakes and the car stops over aptly named Dead Man's Gorge. The helpless skiers are trapped in mid air, hundreds of feet above the gorge floor. Fear is affecting the skiers. Normal rescue efforts will not work at this height, so Ranger Bill and his men get the call. Can Bill rescue the 30 passengers from the ski lift before its car comes crashing back to Mile High Lodge? Or will Dead Man's Gorge earn its name again today?
