They positioned an outstretched tarp below her before the skier, who is believed to be a girl, fell down into it, New York Post reported.

Jacklyn Hoch, who filmed the terrifying scene, told Storyful, “I was about to get in line for the chairlift when I saw the person dangling.”

The eye witness said the skier hanged there for a little over two minutes before letting go and falling into a trap to applause from fellow skiers.

The resort’s officials said that they believe the skier was not injured and they planned to launch a probe. However, it is unclear how she fell out of the chairlift.
