It seems more a nightmare than reality but it actualy happened yesterday in Vail, Colorado. A skier a was left dangling upside down and pantsless from a chairlift last Thursday morning. 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. 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.
Could you really imagine something more embarrassing ?!?
