A group of skiers in North Carolina, got hosed down with freezing water while already in below-freezing temps.
It happened Friday on the Beech Mountain Resort, where officials say someone slammed into a water/air hydrant that is used to make snow while coming down the mountain.
This triggered a huge amount of water to shoot straight up into the air and directly into the path of skiers attempting to get to the top of the slopes
Two guests were reportedly taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The resort says, “Our operations and safety team worked diligently to unload the lift and drain the system safely,” and that they “believe everyone is okay outside of the unfortunate situation, and operations are on a regular schedule.”
