Skier Suffers Exposure

A ski lift mishap at Blue Sky Basin resort in Vail, Colorado left a 48-year-old man hanging upside down without his pants on New Years Day.
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.

Yeah Technology.
In the old days, only those actually at the ski lodge would be laughing at your embarrassment. But nowadays thanks to the internet, Entire regions of the country can laugh at your bare butt being dragged up the mountain while you unintentionally moon the entire ski slope. I wonder how long this will take him to live down?
