    Posted: Mar/10/2013 at 9:56pm

i got on the chair lift with these two girls. while we were waiting for the lift at the line, they were in deep conservation. so the girl next to me didn't realize the lift was just come from right behind us. caught her off guard and threw her off balance. While she was falling, I literally had to pick her butt up onto the lift. lol. she really appreciated me grabbing her butt and my girl can't even get mad at me bout me grabbing some other girl's butt.

Wow, your buddy is smooth.

A few years ago I was at Aspen Highlands with my buddy.  Halfway through the day he took off for a break and I kept riding.  Later he caught up to me and told me his story.  After his break he took the Exhibition chair up and the guy next to him was talking really fast and making funny/crazy observations about people - what they were wearing, how bad some of the skiers/snowboarders were, etc.  As they were getting off the lift it finally hit him that this funny guy was Robin Williams (the comedian).  Instead of taking the next chair up to the peak my buddy boarded with Robin Williams on a couple runs and said he was better than he expected him to be.

that should be done at the magic carpet...or at least the short green runs if there's no magic carpet at the resort. that dumb dad is going to get his kid killed....

My brother and I never use the safety bars at Bear Mountain.  One day it was a bit windy and he asked me if we should use it.  I laughed and said no.  Right then a gust of wind blew through.  We looked at the ground then at the sky then at the ground etc.  We used the safety bar after that.

Way back when I was a noob I got the little glove cinch thing caught on the lift but didn't realize it until I tried to get off.  I got dragged almost to the edge before the lift stopped.  The glove didn't break though - score 1 for Foursquare.

This happened to my friend too! only the ending of the story wasn't so happy. He actually fell off and broke his wrist pretty bad. had to get surgery on it.

I know someone who their mother fell off while her older sister (at the time very young) was crying. The sister got to the top and told the chairlift attendant, while crying, that her mom fell off the lift and died.  She didn't know that her mom, got up, and skied to the bottom of the lift, with nothing wrong. That has to be so traumatic as a child to see your mom fall off

that is just crazy.  I am glad he is alright, they should show this video to all the kids trying to get on the lifts.  I been taking my 8 year old nephew riding and when I pull the bar down I make him put the middle divider between his legs. if there are a lot of people with us I make sure I hold him. I wouldn't want anything like that happen to him. or anyone for that matter

The Penis Game

A humorous, albeit inappropriate, game involving a minimum of two people. One person will whisper penis while the second male or female will whisper it louder. The game will continue until the person who says "Penis" the loudest gets caught. That person loses while the rest of the participants win.

yeah unless you trip getting on or off a lift this should never happen. you have to be a complete idiot to fall off a lift in transit. the only ones that do where playing around.

where is his board or his skis? i read the article about it and it said that he was throwing a snowball at the group in front of him (the filmers). his momentum carried him over the lift. apparently he was held for 3 days and then sent home. had a small skull fracture and lacerated lung but basically fine.

3 of us waiting for our turn to ride the lift when this one guy decided to barge our party, caught by surprise my friends and I got separated., he ended up riding with just me. then this guy asked me if I mind if he smokes.  I said I definitely mind.  (there was no line at the lift at all.. he could have taken the next chair all to himself and smoked) I guess he was in a hurry to get to the top of the hill.

Dude seems to be at least in his late 30s. Too old to be jumping from that high.
There was a nice soft layer, about a foot at most. Definitely not enough to cushion all of his energy from the fall.
At least he still have one ski attached after the landing...well kinda landed it I guess.lol

I met a guy on the lift who I now ride with occasionally if I see him on the mountain who was on a lift with one of the mountain's team riders when the rider pulled out a 1 gallon bag of shrooms and started handing them out.  Apparently the mountain breathes if you ride on shrooms.

At this small resort near town, A guy got hit a little harder than he expected by the chair, and was teetering on the brink of falling out of it for about 5 seconds, until he did. Below the lift there are some markers sticking out of the snow, and one went straight up the back of his coat. Quite seriously an inch or two in difference of entry point might've killed the guy!

My buddy was on a life on Squaw and was towards the end of the life. He leans forward to early, causing him to fall 30 ft straight onto the ground. Lucky he landed on 3ft of powder and was perfectly fine. He just laid there for a while and had a cute medic come check him out. 10 minutes later he just walked it off and rode down the mountain.

^^ haha Lux, I kind of have a similar story... went to Blue on the last day of the season 2 years ago.  Barely anyone there, only a handful of trails open, and I end up on the chairlift with this young dude.  He, like myself, was by himself just working on tricks and such.  We started small talk about how the conditions were a lot better than expected on such a warm sunny day.  We ended up agreeing that we'd ride together for the rest of the day.  Turns out the dude is awesome and he really pushed me to improve as much as I could before the season literally ended that day.  Later on we decide to take a break, he asks me if I smoke (weed), I said no, but I have some beers I can bring up.  So while we're hiding in the trees, he lights one up while I drink a tall boy.  Met up with him the following season a couple times, then he moved to Whistler and is working and living the POW shred life over there now.  Lucky bastard!

EDIT:  Oh, I forgot I had footage of him, this was the guy, hahaha...

perfect timing for this thread. this past week at park city my friend shut down the lift to the terrain park twice on the same run, once getting one the lift and being run over by the chair and again at the top when he fell and hurt his tailbone getting off of the chair. he is very accident prone and everyone was staring at him on both sides of the lift haha.

"You gonna spark up now?"
"Yeah man. Is it cool?"
"Go ahead, I'm not going to stop you."
"Aight cool."

had a good one today, a Russian man barged past my friends father at the queue of the chair lift, so he had a go at him 'haven't you ever heard of a thing called a queue you blah blah blah'

and then I ended up sat in between then both on the chair lift... fun times!

also, a skier decided to stand in the middle of the exit from the chair lift at the top to put his skis on, and with only one foot in my boyfriend couldn't go off the path, so ended up hitting the skiers pole, had a go at the man telling him he's in the most stupid place ever and that if he wasn't stood there it wouldn't happen...
They then got into an argument.. and out of all the people in the world that could be at Bansko, it ended up being a friend of mine from back in the UK...

two for you!

My dad told me that he was skiing in Aspen one time a long way back when a kid (or young adult) pulled out a vial of blow and asked him if he'd like any..

My dad said "what in the hell! you can't be doing that stuff man- you're too young!" or something along those lines. (at least that's what he claims)..

Anyhow, the kid went on to tell my dad that the day before he was on a lift chair with Jack Nicholson, who had his own vial- but when he pulled it out he dropped it, at which time he said "oops, it seems that I've dropped my lunch."

Just chilling on the chair lift during night ski. BOOM all the lights go out and the lift stops... People start freaking out a bit. People that were boarding/skiing took off the board/skis and started walking down to slope to the lift. After about 30 mins the lift and light came back up. rough day haha

Last week, a sweet lady skier in her 40s started a conversation with me on the chair lift. It was just her and I. I'm pretty sure she was part of a tourist group from Qu├ębec and mistook me for somebody else in that group. Kept telling me about some good runs with good snow and I just played along with it lol.. Nice lady, really.

When I went snowboarding during winter break, there was this one guy who was sitting behind me and he was jumping up and down on his seat, and it made all the chairs near him rock up and down.

Not really as epic as some of the stories on here but me and 3 mates got stuck on a chairlift in Verbier, Switzerland last year. The sun was shining, it was coming to the end of the season. After about 35mins of sitting stationary i took out my iphone to play a few tunes to numb the boredom, after 3/4 songs we were bellowing out Queens Bohemian Rhapsody. It was great fun. Also after that we (for some unknown reason) pretended we were snipers and head-shotting people coming down the piste (2 of my mates were skiers, hence the poles). The things we do when we're bored eh?
The 'GINGERS HAVE SOULS' kid is crazy..
