Skiers Stuck on Lift Blasted With Freezing Water

At North Carolina’s Beech Mountain, two skiers were hospitalized and others hurt when a water pipe burst directly below a chairlift, jetting water dozens of feet in the air. That’s almost impossible levels of suck. Apparently someone skied into a hydrant along the water line, which to a leak so strong it shot water into the chairlift, blasting a few riders out of their chair and onto the ground.

The lift was stopped, of course, but one chair halted right above the burst pipe. The resort apologized for skiers “getting wet.” Getting. Wet. Uh-huh.

Here’s a longer video, where you can see the lift coming to a stop and people frantically trying to free the stuck skier(s?).
