Holy shit!!! Was anyone at A-Basin on 4/9

Yesterday I was standing in front of the lodge getting ready to take a run. As I was putting on my gloves I heard this loud crash behind me. I turned around and looked up just in time to see a semi-tanker skid to a stop on it's side on this ledge of concrete sticking out of the side of the mountain just above the parking lot. If it wouldn't have been for that concrete ledge that tanker would have rolled a couple hundred feet down the mountain and hit the road right by the parking area. Lucky for that driver that the ledge was there. Ski patrol went up and got the driver out and he was lucky to be alive.

I got some pics with my phone, but it's a POS that apparently pixelates very bad when zoomed in. If any of you were there and got some decent pics post 'em up.

I found a link to the news story about this http://www.kdvr.com/news/kdvr-lovela...,5321848.story
