Father and Son Get ‘Insane’ Heli Rescue from Gondola

Father and Son Get ‘Insane’ Heli Rescue from Gondola

If only all evacuations from stuck ski lifts were this cool.

It has been a bad week for ski lifts. A chair fell off the North Bowl lift at Heavenly in Lake Tahoe on Sunday, forcing the evacuation of 65 people. An 11-year-old New Hampshire boy fell off a chair at Ragged Mountain and suffered a concussion. And at Kicking Horse in British Columbia, a power outage shut down a gondola, leading to the rescue of passengers by helicopter. But no one was hurt, and one father-son duo got a helicopter lift to the top of Kicking Horse that no doubt beats any run down.
