A skier at Colorado’s ritzy Vail resort was left dangling upside down and pantsless from a chairlift last Thursday.
The poor guy was stuck for 15 minutes before they backed up the lift so they could dislodge him. 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.
Continuing the Seinfeld reference…It’s salacious, outrageous, hilarious, litigious.
More photos taken by fellow skiers (it’s a miracle they could hold their cameras steady while laughing their asses off) and the full report are at The Smoking Gun. Definitely an early favorite for picture of the year.
