SOLITUDE -- Power's back on at Solitude a day after an outage stranded skiers on lifts.

Solitude officials told KSL it reopened all runs and all of its eight lifts to customers early Friday morning.

Thursday, 50 people were stranded on two lifts for several hours after police say a fallen tree knocked out power. Ski patrol had to throw ropes to those who were stranded and lower them to the ground.

Later, a viewer sent us video showing electrical arcs near one of the lifts.

It's a different story in the town of Cedar Mountain. The area has received up to 7 feet of snow, causing trees to topple onto power lines.

The snow is to blame for the outage that's left people in the dark since Monday.

Officials with Garkane power say they are working as fast as they can to get the lines fixed but that some residents will likely not get power back until after Christmas.
