LEWISBERRY -- Some people looking to spend a Saturday afternoon on the slopes were in for a surprise at Roundtop Mountain Resort in York County.

Just before 4:00pm over 100 people became stranded on the main lift when an engine burned out, leaving them dangling in the air.

People had to be rescued from the lift one at a time to ensure their safety.

Some were stuck on the ski lift for as long as an hour and half.

Luckily, no one was injured and despite the ordeal, most people remained in good spirits and even applauded the way Roundtop handled the situation.

Santo Pease was the last person rescued from the chair lift, he said, "It was quite an experience, I am pleased with how Roundtop handled it, they did a good job."

The lift will remain shut down until further notice. All slopes will remain open.Skiers get stuck on ski lift at Roundtop Mountain Resort
