A chairlift at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort is out of commission because of an avalanche.

The avalanche was triggered by a ski patrol explosive Monday afternoon at 4:45, the resort said on its Facebook page. The bottom of the High Campbell chair lift was knocked 15 feet off its foundation.

The area was closed at the time and no one was hurt.
  
Crystal said because people are asking to buy one of the chairs, they would soon be announcing a plan for this.
