Police shelve ski ramp collapse case

Police have shelved their investigation into the collapse of a ski ramp for a quad chairlift at Špindlerův Mlýn in the Krkonoše Mountains last year. No one was hurt in the accident last March. Most important in the investigation were assessments of expert witnesses who gauged the site’s stability and other factors. It appeared that renovation over the years had compromised the stability of the ramp but some of the necessary documentation, on who oversaw changes and when, could not be located.
