Local first responders were called to the Ski Granby Ranch ski resort at around 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning Dec. 29 on a report of individuals falling off one of the Resort’s ski lifts.

Chief Ray Jennings with Grand County EMS confirmed the incident Thursday morning but could release only a few details. According to Jennings three people fell from one of the chair lifts at the resort. Grand County EMS transported all three individuals to Middle Park Medical Center – Granby. Jennings also confirmed that the Granby Police Department and the Grand County Sheriff’s Office are currently investigating the events leading up to the incident.

Officials from the Grand Fire Protection District issued a press release from Granby Ranch a little before 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon. Few additional details were revealed in the Granby Ranch press release but the release did state that three, “skiers and snowboarders were involved in an incident on the Quickdraw Lift.”

The online version of this story will be updated as additional details emerge.
