WHISTLER BLACKCOMB, Canada — Wild video out of Whistler where a skier fell from a considerable height after becoming “unseated” while riding the Crystal Ridge Express chairlift. Unfortunately the video will not embed but you can WATCH IT HERE. Thankfully a combination of resort staff and bystanders were able to catch the falling skier who was not only okay but went on to ski the rest of the day.

“Resort staff and guests successfully deployed a deceleration device to catch the guest.┬áThe guest was evaluated by Patrol at the scene and returned to skiing. Our gratitude goes out to our operators and guests, whose quick reactions allowed for this favourable outcome.”
