A fire has destroyed a shed housing chairlift equipment at Alpine Valley Ski Area, but the resort will be open this season on time.  The shed housed $80,000 in chairlift equipment, specifically electrical components for the four-main chairlift on the Everest hill. The fire occurred Sunday afternoon around 4:00pm.  Alpine Valley manager Kevin Schons said today, “We’re going to be up and running.  It’s just a little setback for us.  We’re going to keep moving forward.”
