Chairlift Rollback at Devilshead

About one month ago or so there was an incident at Devilshead Ski Resort. What happened was a chairlift malfunction leading to chairlift rollback. People were hurt and seriously (though none of the injuries were life threatening). Yesterday’s video showed a fellow doing a belly flop into powder from a chairlift and obviously that was stupid, but everything I’ve read indicates this is a situation where it is probably best to do that.

I tip my hat to Gadling for this video.

This is not a trivial event, read more for another example of an uncontrolled chairlift rollback.

Good Stuff!
