Holy Shit! That's so gnarly, I can't believe they left the lift running, some true self destruction. Maybe to get people out of the way that were on the chair?
Edit: Here's another vid from the chair...

I'm not too fluent but just after it stops and they are yelling I heard:

Distant shouter: "Fetch the Cow"
Dude on Lift: "What"
Distant Shouter: "Fetch the Cow"

Ahh, I see. Quite right. Well now, there you go then. Don't let your cows follow you up the slopes.


Or did he mean the famous St Bernard rescue cows?

Incredible! @28 sec, it looks like they just barely stopped loading the chair about 10 seconds before it hit.
I guess noone got hurt (?). So lucky that the lift cable did not come off the bullwheel; and the bullwheel brake worked; having the lift run backwards uncontrolled is a worst case scenario for anyone on the lift.

Big wet slides are like moving wet concrete. In the early 80s there was a big wet slide off of Flagstaff in Alta that demolished a couple buildings off their foundations. Then it hit the road, rolled right up to some plate glass windows at the top of the Alta Lodge, then squirted down the road to the right and did not break the windows. Witnesses said you could out-walk it down the road it was going so slowly.

Searching around about this avy turned up a huge powder slide vid I have not seen before:
