Breuil-Cervinia

area , blocking the

Cretaz chairlift

. The lift had already been closed to the public due to the sudden worsening of conditions and the last passengers were reaching the top station. During the unloading phase of the line - which took place in complete safety and according to procedures - a further

increase in wind

was recorded . 

All people on board arrived

at their destination without consequences
