By now everybody and their grandma and their great-grandma has seen the story about the unlucky skier who got maximum exposure while unfortunately dangling from the chairlift at Blue Sky Basin at Vail last week. So I simply present you with the photo, as it first appeared in print on page A10 in the Vail Daily last Saturday.
And the Fark mob, as always, goes nuts with the comments.
One last thought. Notice he’s a skier, not a snowboarder. ‘Nuff said.
UPDATE: Turns out the photographer, Marty Odom, was employed by SharpShooter Imaging. I say “was,” because he was told on Monday that he’s been “suspended until further notice.” Odom says he was not working for SharpShooter when he took the photo, and used his personal camera. Apparently SharpShooter has a no-compete clause. And according to Odom, Vail Resorts pulled his pass. Bummer.
I wonder if the SharpShooter photographer on-duty that day caught the dangling victim from the frontside.
