glad she's o.k...but good thing it was after your last run and not at the beginning of the sesh

I had a close call couple days ago where I was right at the top, ready to dismount, when the lift suddenly jerked to a stop. Since I'm already at the off ramp, I go ahead and start to slide off...when the lifty totally floors it, immediately jerking me over the bottom of the ramp where I drop what seemed like about ten feet to flat. Lucky I didn't crack something and no one was in the chairs behind me. Didn't even think the lifty was going to come out of the booth (probably because I was yelling), but he finally did...just to blame the operator at the bottom...didn't even ask if I was o.k.
