There’s really only one way to preface this footage from a ski resort in Gudauri, Georgia: Holy. Effing. Crap.
WOW. Terrifying scene on the slopes today in the country of Georgia as a ski lift breaks down in epic fashion. pic.twitter.com/ffCGJn2Wvi

More from Georgia Today:
The ski lift ropeway, which transports skiers in Georgia’s Gudauri resort, has been damaged.
According to local media, the defect to the lifts meant that it sped up to double the normal speed and threw people off of their chairs as it tried to ascend.
Whilst no serious injuries have been reported as of yet, people were left “shaken and shocked”, as the ski lift threw people off of their seats and into the snow.
Thank god some jumped…awful
