And this is why I don't Ski or Snowboard, multiple times have people falling 45 feet or higher from ski lifts. It happened again recently and was caught on tape. Luckily the boy in this video is home and is fine despite suffering injuries. The kid in the first video tried to throw a snowball at the lift in front of his and the momentum took him off his seat. This video is not for the squeamish.
