What is being described as a “lift mishap” has elicited an OMG from just about everyone who has seen the photos. A skier at Vail Resorts on January 2nd somehow became unseated from a lift and was left dangling for fifteen minutes – this is not unusual, though in Colorado ski areas must operate their ski lifts under the highest duty of care. What has caught the attention of the blogosphere, as well as the local Denver news programs, is the fact that the poor skier was “depantsed” in the process and left hanging without cover during the unpleasant incident. Photos and a more complete description of the incident are provided on the website The Smoking Gun.
