Ever fallen off a ski lift? I don't think I have, but I got bumped off to the side by a 4th person coming up quickly behind me (on a triple) and I sat on his lap, realized what happened and jumped off to the side. I couldn't get out of the way fast enough and I got whacked pretty hard by the side of the chair. Spun me around and about dislocated my shoulder. I was was pretty angry. Now a days I look out for that.
Once a kid I was skiing with started to slip out as the chair left the loading area. I yelled 'STOP THE LIFT' but the liftie was deaf, I couldn't hold onto him and pushed him the rest of the way out of the chair. Luckily it was only about 4 feet to the ground. (He was fine)
