If you think too much while riding chairlifts, you may start to wonder just how safe these things really are. Chairlifts are very safe, but things can go wrong from time to time. This season we’ve had some scary lift accidents including the lift rolling backwards for a minute at Sugarloaf in Maine last week.
This week, we’ve got a video of a Ukrainian chairlift getting hit by a tree. Scary, but nothing dangerous seems to come of it. The tree fortunately hits the side of the chairlift that has the empty chairs.
