Skiier Caught Dangling Bare-Bottomed on Lift

Skiier Caught Dangling Bare-Bottomed on Lift

The Smoking Gun

A skier falls through the Blue Sky Basin Chairlift last Friday after losing his pants.
VAIL, Colo. — The guy who ended up dangling upside down from a ski lift with his bare bottom whistling in the wind probably doesn't want to hear any "ski bum" jokes. Vail Resorts said the 48-year-old man wasn't injured and was rescued after about seven minutes. His name hasn't been released.

Resort officials have said only that the man was trying getting on the Blue Ski Basin lift on New Year's Day. They haven't said what went wrong. Resort workers stopped the lift, backed it up about 10 or 12 feet and rescued the man. Bystanders snapped photos and posted them the Internet, showing a man who looks to be hanging by one ski boot, his ski pants and underwear apparently snagged in the chair and reaching no farther than his knees. Vail spokeswoman Liz Biebl confirmed the photos on one site were in fact the victim.
