somewhere I missed the humor in this !!! You can hear that motor on the lift start to rev up when his knee was pinned in there. Screaming in pain...again no humor in that

I did see a teenager get drug off the chair today as he turned his board sideways after boarding, the chair came down and he caught his edge in the snow and it pulled him off. Good thing he wasn't high up and the lifty were watching

ski lift fail at Stratton VT - YouTube

one more reason why snowboarding is better then skiing, dont have to worry about something like this^.
Sucked for him, but I fear far more bad things happening to me getting on/off the lift on my board than I ever did on skis. I'm also more of a danger to others because if you stand in the unload area where you should clear the eff out I might just run straight into you.

hey ppl gotta learn lessons the hill the hard way sometimes. Clear the damn unloading area. I envy east coast lifties sometimes. They have to see some hilarious shit season to season.

Yea u guys are right. It's not that funny. I think I initially laughed because I just don't see how ppl, skiers especially, fuck up on the lifts that slow down. If he blew his knee that would definitely blow

He got up after the incident and was limping slightly but i don think it was a blown knee if anything it could have been a concussion because of how hard he hit the ground. He looked a bit confused.

I saw a guy do the exact same thing last year. For some reason decided to swing his skis at the last minute and they stuck into the snow. He ended up falling out of his chair and into the safety net before the lift exit. He was fine, just a bit embarrassed. I found it absolutely hilarious though.

Couple of years ago the Lodge chair loading area on Seymour was poorly groomed and too low to the snow. Boarders were having a problem where the toe edge would catch as it was dragged under the chair. I saw a couple of people get pulled right off the chair before it lifted high enough to allow them to get the board off the snow.

Granted that noobs are going to crash, a lot of times the fault is with the lifties not maintaining the loading or unloading area properly.
