High Wind, Ski Lift, Falling Tree Don't Mix

A tree falling onto a chair lift
causes some frightening moments
at a Ukranian ski resort.  
Ski season is pretty much over in North America, though a few die hard resorts are still open in northern New England, New York, the Rocky Mountains and parts of Canada.

And I woke up to an unwelcome inch of April snow in St. Albans, Vermont this morning.


That said, it's still pretty wild to look at the video, below, at the Bukovel ski resort in Ukraine. Somebody on a ski lift during a windy, snowy day caught the scary moment when a tree blew over onto the lift. Yikes!

Luckily there were no reports of deaths or serious injuries with this incident.

It's unclear when this incident happened, but the video was uploaded to YouTube earlier this month.

Watch it to the end, as the tree keeps causing trouble:
