  1. #1 Skier Loses Pants, Dignity On Vail Lift. 
    Skier Suffers Exposure



    Man left dangling upside down, pantsless after Vail lift mishap

    JANUARY 6--In a bizarre incident that will surely lead to litigation (or an out-of-court settlement), a skier at Colorado's ritzy Vail resort was left dangling upside down and pantsless from a chairlift last Friday morning. The January 2 mishap apparently occurred after the male skier and a child boarded a high-speed lift in Vail's Blue Sky Basin. It appears that the chairlift's fold-down seat was somehow not in the lowered position, which caused the man to partially fall through the resulting gap. His right ski got jammed in the ascending chairlift, and that kept him upended since his boot never dislodged from its binding. As seen in the photos on the following pages (which were snapped by fellow skiers), the Skyline Express lift was stopped shortly after the pair's botched 10:30 AM boarding resulted in the man dangling from the lift. The exposed skier was stuck for about 15 minutes before Vail personnel backed the lift up and successfully dislodged the unidentified man from the four-seat chair.
    Whoa! :eek:

    I hope they get to the bottom of this. I mean, having that happen to you probably would really chap your ass. He'll no doubt be the butt of many a joke. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "How's it hanging?".

    You forgot what the guys on the ground were saying - NOTHING TO SEE HERE . . . . ;)

    We cracked up at work. Now, we have even more pics since we employ a lot of ski patrol people and this has been burning down the electrons. Apparently, a lot of people had pic phones that day. :D

    either way - judging from the photo - there was "nothing to see here."
