FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Snowbowl is up and running despite a power outage halting operations.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1PqETA7) that the ski resort had to delay operations for two and a half hours Sunday morning.

Crews turned on backup generators to get lifts moving but then had to test them.

Resort managers say the generators restored power to all lifts by 11 a.m. except for Agassiz, which was still being tested.

The resort gave a 25 percent discount on lift tickets as a result.

Snowbowl officials say a tree falling in a power line was the cause of the outage.

Arizona Public Service utility was expected to restore power in the afternoon.
