Scary chairlift rollback

This video is from a few years ago at a South American ski area. The chair was stopped, but the breaks were not applied, so it suffered a rollback that ended up injuring 8 skiers. No one perished and everyone recovered. The result of the investigation was that it was human error that caused the incident.

T-bar lift fails

This video is provided by Dejan Kovacic and the theme here is all about T-bars. This type of surface drag lift is not very prevalent in North America and for those who are not used to it, they take a little getting used to. As you can see in this fail video.
