It took them HOW long to hit the Stop button!?

And they try to move potentially injured people from the scene. I wonder if the courts punished them severely for such shoddy operations.

What I never understood is why were so many skiers riding the lift DOWN the hill?

I had to look it up. Gudauri ski resort is in Georgia (the former Soviet republic that is, not the US state).

Is Gudauri 'still' in Georgia, or did it get 'annexed'?

I have known a number of friends and acquaintances who were attracted to skiing holidays in Eastern Europe by the low prices compared to the traditional Swiss and Austrian resorts and regretted the experience. Poor standard of travel and accommodation, theft with the collusion of the local police too.
Though to be fair that was not long after the fall of the Soviet regimes.

The stop button only shuts the electric motor down, same for the emergency stop. That is what’s called a rollback, you can see the bull wheel (driven wheel, usually at the bottom) is turning backwards so it’s completely decoupled from the drive motor. My guess is the only brake is on the shaft connecting the motor to the gearbox, with a coupling probably gone the brake is useless. What’s making it turn? The weight of the wire rope, chairs, and skiers still on it.

On lifts here in the states there are anti-rollback devices, such as metal blocks on the bull wheel with dogs that ride over the blocks when the wheel is turning forward but engage the blocks to stop the wheel in reverse. Others have a rubber roller that rides on the bull wheel, connected to a tach generator that provides a signal to keep the mechanical brake released but if it stops or turns backward the brake automatically applies. (It’s been 15 years since I worked on lifts so I may have a few of the details wrong.) There should be a mechanical or spring-applied, hydraulically-released brake that physically stops the bull wheel, maybe maintenance is shoddy or maybe standards are lower there.

See how fast the chairs are going and how they’re throwing people off? The same thing is happening at the unload station.
