Sheriff’s report: Two middle-aged men fight over Canyons Village gondola ride
Two middle-aged Park City men got into a fight Sunday over a gondola ride at Canyons Village, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. The first man told the lift attendant he had an infectious disease and had to ride alone, and when the second man heard that, he chose to wait for another ride.
