Incredible footage of a malfunctioning ski lift has emerged displaying skiers and snowboarders being flung metres into the air before plummeting into the snow.

The ski lift was running in the opposite direction that it is supposed to, and at an extreme pace.

The incident occurred on Friday afternoon local time, at the Udauri ski resort located in Gudauri, Georgia. 

A number of passengers have reportedly been hospitalised due to the incident but there were no fatalities.
