An employee of Mt. Timothy Ski Area was transported to hospital with injuries following an incident at the hill earlier this week.
A WorkSafeBC representative confirmed her office received notification on Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 12:52 p.m. that an incident occurred at the Mount Timothy Ski Area.
“Our preliminary information indicates a worker was injured while working on a conveyor surface lift and was transferred to hospital,” Erica Simpson, government and media relations officer for WorkSafeBC, told the Tribune Friday.
Simpson said an officer was onsite investigating and that an inspection report will be available next week in regards to the incident.
When contacted by the Tribune Friday morning, the ski hill’s general manager Caroline Sherrer declined comment.
According to the hill’s Facebook page, the upper magic carpet will not be operating until further notice. It is expected the hill’s lower magic carpet will be up and running by Saturday morning.
