Alpinko’s general manager, Odd Stensrud, says the crash happened in a minivan starting at a central station in Hafjell.

– Was there less snow than usual at the drop-off point, otherwise based on the ice conditions on the ground?

– Yes, I can confirm that it was snowing less than usual where he fell.

Stainsroot says this is an unavoidable accident because all the chair lifts at the ski resort have safety belts.

The fall did not occur immediately after the climb, but approximately after. One-third of this chair.
