Video: Tree Falling On Moving Chairlift

Have you ever been skiing or snowboarding and wondered questions like; “What if the chairlift cable snapped?”, “What if extreme wind starts bouncing these chairs around too much”, or “What if a tree fell on the chairlift?”. That happens to this Russian skier / snowboarder and it’s all caught on camera.

Not only did a tree fall on the chairlift, but after pausing for a second, the lift continues its operation. The tree is pushed off the chairlift by the moving cable, nearly taking a chair down with it and sending the chair swinging out of control. The camera man’s voice says it all as they pass the swinging chair and see the tree continue it’s fall.

It must of been even more wild for the snowboarder in front of them.
