A 48-year-old skier was left hanging upside down, half naked on a chair lift at the Blue Sky Basin at the Vail Ski Resort in Vail, Colorado, on Tuesday.

His pants and underwear were apparently caught in the ski lift, leaving him bare bottomed and exposed, or approximately 15 minutes.

The photo of the so-called naked skier, who was really only half-naked, resulted in a suspended job for the photographer, Marty Odom.

Odom was not working in a professional capacity when he shot the photos, although he is a professional photographer.

Fortunately, the man, who has not yet been named, was not hurt.
