Two elderly couples were reported to be having difficulties negotiating the rough terrain on the Cliff Trail (just above the Cliff House at the top of gondola on Mt Mansfield) during a thunder storm.
SMR was activated to assist the couple. Approximately 20 minutes after being dispatched, SMR was advised that the couple was able to get down the Cliff Trail and was waiting at the Cliff House. Stowe Mt Resort started the gondola and was able to transport the couple back to the base.
