(Camera phone footage)Video information from source:--The agle can be deceiving, it may appear less of a fall than it actually was--
A snowboarder was swinging as we were going up the slope, when he smacked into one on the supporting beams. He then manages to grap on with one hand. We continue moving for about 20 seconds until the lift is stopped at a lower point than the original point of the accident. He then drops approximately up to 12-13 feet, (man = approximately just under 6 feet tall - boarder = 5- 6 feet + gap between 5-6 feet before walking back with the ski patrol for, what I presume, medical examinations.
This video begins about 20 seconds into the fiasco, post collision.
Video was taken at Alpline Valley Ski Resort in East Troy Wisconsin, December 30th, 2007
