Can you imagine anyone being dumb enough to try and ride this chair lift without using the safety bar?

We were! Didn't realise there was a safety bar until they stopped the lift, shouting "bar! bar!" at us. The scariest moment came when the lift stopped and the chair rocked forward, then back again...

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Yikes! Not being a skier, I didn't know about that either.

@Steve Rice: I know... so many little moments where we felt completely out of synch with everyone else (being in a ski resort, but non-skiers...) but not many of those moments were as dangerous!
