A woman has been arrested in British Columbia for allegedly helping a man pry open the doors of a Whistler gondola cabin so he could parachute down.
Whistler RCMP say they are also close to arresting the man who performed the illegal BASE jump from the gondola.
BASE jumping, considered an extreme sport, involves jumping off cliffs, buildings or other objects, using a parachute to break the fall.
The Whistler incident was captured on camera by the jumper, and posted to YouTube on Feb. 11.
In the video, the woman who is inside the gondola with the jumper can be seen propping the doors open with her feet at one point. The footage is captured by a camera on the jumper's helmet and follows him all the way down as he successfully lands in the snow below.
Whistler-Blackcomb resort officials said the cost of replacing the damaged gondola cabin door and locking mechanism is about $10,000.
The woman is facing charges of mischief over $5,000 and obstruction.
Police say the jumper also faces a charge of mischief over $5,000.
