Chambery, France - Two skiers spent the night on a ski-lift in freezing temperatures after staff switched the machinery off and went home, police said on Sunday.
The two Parisian men, aged 26 and 36, were discovered on the ski-lift on Sunday morning as the ski resort re-opened and were transported to hospital suffering from hypothermia.
The Arcs, at an altitude of 1 800m in the Alps, experienced an overnight temperature of -4?C.
Authorities at the ski station, accusing ski-lift staff of lack of vigilance, have opened an inquiry into the incident.
