Wife crashed coming off lift

We went up Seymour for some night skiing/riding. Riding up the Lodge chair AFTER OUR LAST RUN, the yutz skier on the chair in front of us had a total yard sale getting off the lift, then just lay there as if waiting for a crane to come along and lift him off. The liftie for some reason didn't stop the lift, so my wife and I had to do hard left/right to avoid running over the twerp and his equipment.

Unfortunately, my wife didn't make it. She hooked a ski on one of the bamboo poles trying to get past the scattered equipment and body parts and had a yard sale of her own, culminating in a jammed shoulder and possibly cracked ribs (just bruised as it turns out). We ended up in the first aid station wife getting ice-packed and in a sling.

Aaaaaaaanyway, we spent 3 hours in Emergency, got x-rays, and the doctor said ribs just bruised take advil go home. Still, you can bet I'm gonna hear about it for a while...

I think I'd ask the resort to train their lift staff better.
It's not like they have much else to do than to prevent the type of collision that your wife had.

I didn't get hurt, but the same kinda thing happened to me. Guy fell right at the start of the runoff and just sat there. Chair wasn't crowded so I tried to slide my butt to the right to be able to clear him once I could stand up & didn't quite make it. My fall only hurt my pride tho!

WTF is wrong with people!! After I fell, I got the hell outta the way!!! (always have!) That dink, was still sittin' there for the next chair full of people to avoid!!

X2 - Hope the wife has a speedy recovery!

If you fall in front of me and I could risk injury or ride over you I will ride over you to preserve myself. It's part of my I don't value human life campaign.

X2, when I am riding chairs, if somebody falls in front of me and I can't avoid them, they are getting run over. I am not going to injure myself cause of some other yutz.

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.
