The Birmingham Public School District has canceled a ski trip to Mt. Holly on Thursday after an incident last week in which three students fell from a lift and were injured at the northern Oakland County resort.
The Derby Middle School students sustained injuries that included broken bones in the Jan. 9 incident, according to district spokeswoman Marcia Wilkinson.
The students, who have not been identified, were taken to the hospital, treated and released, said Wilkinson.
She said the ski resort was investigating the mishap. Mark Tibbetts, general manager of Mt. Holly, was not available for comment Tuesday afternoon.
In the wake of the incident, Birmingham Public Schools has suspended trips to Mount Holly, according to an email to parents from Derby Middle School Principal Celeste Nowacki.
“The suspension will continue until officials complete the investigation of the chair lift, which is believed to have been the problem in this very unfortunate situation,” Nowacki wrote in the email.
A ski and snowboarding trip scheduled for Thursday has been canceled. The district is looking for other ski venues for the coming weeks, she wrote.
