VAIL, Colo. – A guy who dangled upside down from a ski lift with his bare bottom exposed probably doesn't want to hear any "ski bum" jokes. Officials at Vail Resorts in Colorado say the 48-year-old man was trying to get on the Blue Ski basin lift on New Year's Day. They haven't said what went wrong.

Workers stopped the lift, backed it up 10 or 12 feet and rescued the man after about seven minutes. His name hasn't been released.

Bystanders snapped photos and posted them on 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.

The picture was "adjusted" to protect the innocents.

I think they spent more time on that one and a cat stuck in a tree for a couple days than they did on everything going on in the middle east. :baffled:

I heard on the news that the photographer that took this shot might lose his job for taking that shot. Details to come....

apparently this guy fell through a gap in the seat after he sat down. The guy is threatening a lawsuit against the ski company and the shuttebug, who worked for the ski company.
