Technical Issues hampered my experience

Nade05/03/2019
Great snow and good terrain but I and other guests experienced a cat breakdown which we were warned the previous night could be an issue. Despite a third ‘stand by’ cat; we had to hike back out. This halved our day and amount of vertical to only 3hrs/1850m. On a 2 day trip this is costly. As a group we were told it was one of those things.... and were expected to suck it up. I later learned from the 4 day group I skied with that another breakdown occurred. I had a better time with Rising sun even though their cats are older.
