See Skiers Trapped on Lift in 100 MPH Winds
As winter continues, more and more of us are heading to the hills for some downhill fun. Each year we strap slick sticks to our feet and gracefully fall down a hill. But, none of it would be made possible, if it wasn't for the chair lift. You would be crazy to think that I am going to spend hours hiking up a mountain in waist deep snow, just for 10 minutes of downhill exhilaration.
But, sometimes lifts breakdown. I personally have been lowered from a lift after a mechanical breakdown. And from my experience, it doesn't look like a long jump until you are dangling from a rope.
We are no strangers to high wind gusts, in our part of the world. But, in Austria, footage has recently surfaced of a group of skiers trapped in 100 mph wind. How would you handle this situation?
