skierThe BBC have reported how a skier was left dangling from a chairlift at an American resort after he became stuck upside-down with his ski trousers round his ankles.

Photos show the man naked from his waist to his knees, swinging from one leg, and still wearing both skis.  He became entangled shortly after boarding the Skyline Express lift.  The lift was stopped and reversed about 12ft (3.6m) before he was freed by the Vail Ski Patrol, Vail Resort said in a statement about the 1 January incident.  The resort operator said the 48-year-old man was suspended for about seven minutes, but was uninjured.
