Saw guy fall off lift.
Ok, so i just got back from an amazing day at Snow Summit riding with some friends on my brothers new board (o-matic celebrity) from wiredsports (which i will write a review for soon), and i'm going down one of the runs and im waiting for my friends and then out of the corner of my eye i see this guy fall 20 or so feet off one of the 2 express lifts they have and land slightly off the trail. My reaction was like HOLY $%^&!!!!! and so i unstrapped and went over to him and asked him if he was ok, and he didn't seem to even know what happened to him, but he soon got up and walked towards the trail when the ski patrol checked him out, and that is when i left.
He was on the chair lift with 2 other of his friends it seemed like and i'm not sure how he fell off, they clearly did not have the bar down, and it was either his fault or maybe his friends fault, but maybe he was drunk or something, i duno, it was a pretty crazy sight, thought i'd share this bit of info to maybe make people put the bar down on the lift or don't be an idiot on the lifts, people can really get hurt, and this guy was just lucky.
any one else seen onething like this happen?
(btw this was not right after loading or near getting off, so he has no excuse to be so close to the edge of the chair, his chair was maybe halfway up the mtn)
