Yikes! Doesn't mention anyone getting hurt so that's always good news. Very impressive footage.

It still amazes me how oblivious people were of the danger heading towards them. It's a good thing there wasn't a lot of traffic on that lift. Not one person seemed to show any concern over the situation.

Wet slide avalanches are slow but they are so p o w e r f u l. Not surprised at all that it mangled the lift. Glad no one was riding the lift in the area it struck. The people that were above it were lucky that they had gotten above the flow before it hit, and that it didn't cause the lift to collapse complete. It's been an unusual season with avalanches world wide to say the least.
