Full list of ski-lift accidents

For this article I was hoping to find a ready made list of lift accidents. There are a few short and incomplete lists around the place but they missed out a lot and they were not well referenced, so to get the fullest and most accurate list we had to make our own. For this list, and this is a weird distinction to have to make, we limited it to accidents with at least one fatality or if there were no fatalities to at least ten injuries… 

The gravity-defying class photo in Valais

This year, the HES-SO Valais-Wallis, a Swiss university of applied sciences, reached new heights when some of its students, supervised by professional mountain guides, went to the top of the Pierre Avoi mountain for the highest class photo in Switzerland. This unusual picture shows them suspended at right-angles to the rock face. At the university, as in the photo, professional support and an amazing setting create a unique experience for students. 

Device for eyes. Born in Chamonix

These googles are the product of teamwork. Our starting point was the AeroSpace goggles with their technological aspects, like the SuperFlowSystem, and REACTIV photochromic lens…
We then asked five of our Chamonix skiing and snowboarding crew to choose the graphics. After trying quite a few options, the Chamonix references that appear on the goggles emerged as clear winners. Nothing has been left to chance; each graphic represents an aspect of this valley and its mountain range. 

Frescoes of the Ottonian Renaissance

The architectural and artistic history of the cathedral derives from overlapping of countless building works that took place here from Roman times up to the 19th century. Ancient tradition assigned the commissioning of the Romanesque church to Bishop Anselmo, who held the See from 994 to 1026. The archaeological excavations carried out from 1976 up to the present day and tree-ring dating analyses have confirmed this tradition, indicating that the construction works began in the late 10th century and lasted until the second half of the 11th. The edifice was of basilican plan with a central nave and two side aisles without a transept, and the entrance was on the south side. The east side ended in an imposing structure articulated on various levels with five apses; the choir, raised over a crypt with three aisles, terminated in a large semi-circular apse, flanked by the apses of the side aisles and those of the two bell towers.
