Skier Loses Pants: One Very Cold Misadventure

By M Dee Dubroff     Jan 9, 2009 in Lifestyle
In keeping with that old adage about losing one’s shirt, this unfortunate skier took it a few steps further. Read on for the bare, embarrassing and very cold facts.
According to news sources, the poor skier who remains unidentified but whose very private parts can be viewed at the link provided, was left suffering from two kinds of exposure following a weird mishap at a Colorado ski resort. He was left hanging upside down from a ski lift for 15 minutes with his trousers around his knees!
It all started innocently enough. The man and a child boarded the high-speed lift in Vail’s Blue Sky basin, but for some reason, the fold-down seat was not in the correct lowered-down position. Due to this, he slipped through the resulting gap while attempting to board the lift. He didn’t fall straight to the ground because his right ski became jammed in the ascending lift. Unfortunately, his right ski was not alone in its plight, as his pants too became jammed as he fell, leaving him, shall we say, a few sheets to a very embarrassing wind.
This is the kind of thing that is very funny to everyone except for the poor person it is happening to. Tourists in the ski resort couldn’t resist whipping out their cameras and the poor guy was stuck in this most undignified position for about 15 minutes before a crew could extricate him. Fortunately, except for the rescue team, no one ever saw his face.
Our guy may venture onto the ski lift again, but for him the words 'baring one’s soul' are sure to take on very new and different meanings!
