Skiers stuck on terrifying lift with seats blown side to side

NOPE: These People Stuck On A Ski Lift In A Wild Storm Are Having The Worst Time Ever

While we might be dealing with some seriously hot weather atm, much of Europe has been battling a ferocious storm called ‘Eleanor’ with winds of up to 160 kilometres per hour.

It seems this Austrian ski resort called Vorarlberg didn’t get the memo and remained open to keen-bean skiers. As a result, skiers were left aggressively swinging side-to-side, fully exposed to the sub-shitty conditions. In the video below, you can see their legs wildly dangling from the open seats as rescuers try to do something about it. Pretty damn unpleasant.

Yeah, no thanks. I reckon I’ll shut up about complaining about our heat now and just enjoy the beach.
