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 Thursday morning.

The January 1 mishap apparently occurred after the male skier, 48, 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 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.

The images on page four and five were taken by Marty Odom (who can be reached at martyodm@gmail.com if you're interested in licensing the photos). In a statement released this afternoon, Vail Resorts, which operates the ski area, reported that the skier was not injured after being "suspended for approximately seven minutes." The press release did not explain how the mishap occurred, only that "the man was caught on the chair."

Are female skiers aware of shrinkage?

The only thing that would have made it better would have been if he was rockin' his Chiefs jacket.

Nope. If I had to pick a sitcom from the 90s, it would be Frazier, but I didn't watch any of them regularly.

Not a sitcom fan either, but Seinfeld is a different animal.

Keystone fired the guy who took the pictures. He worked for Sharpshooter - the company that tries to take your pictureson the mountain. They were pissed he posted the pics on the internet instead of giving them to managment.

Dumbass should have at least sold them to one of the online sites.

It wasn't actually in the pool. He was getting dressed in the room after being in the pool. :)
