SAN ANTONIO – A lawsuit was filed nearly a year after the death of a San Antonio woman at a ski resort in Colorado. 

Kelly Huber and her two daughters were on a chairlift when it malfunctioned causing them to fall 25 feet. Huber died and her daughters were injured.

The girl's father, William Huber, filed the lawsuit in Denver Friday. 

The suit claims staff at Ski Granby Ranch knew the lift was unsafe before the incident happened on Dec. 29, 2016.

Court documents say some of the passengers told resort staff they felt unsafe on the lift days before the fall. 

Huber's lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages, including compensation for treatment of his daughters' post-traumatic stress disorder and their medical bills.

The CEO of the resort was not able to comment because the company is the subject of the lawsuit.
