just too funny, I would like to see how he got on...... the dismount was spectacular.... I thought he looked pretty good for a moment when he was laying on the cable.... defiintly looked like a slight waddle on the way back to his car....

me too,  I have never seen a lift like that....it is a rope of sorts right???  whats the purpose of what ever it is that suspended him off the snow??  To keep the tow from trenching a slot I suppose....

Thought it was awfully nice of the camerafool not to warn him,
guess the entertainment value was too good.
Hope he can find some car wrecks----

Alta transfer tow (between Wildcat/Collins base and Albion base).

Was that you, John J?  Can't hear your falsetto over the web.

I know enough now to no longer nose-in to warn people for mistakes they're about to commit if it's not obviously critical or fatal.  God know how many snarky and angry retorts I've had to endure for being good-intentioned.  Doubtless the cameraman knew the same.

Besides, to correct/warn somebody before a mistake makes itself obviously clear requires the assumption that your own technique is the one-and-only correct way to do something.  It's better to just hang back and watch (to learn a possibly better way, or in this case watch hilarity ensue).

So it's great that you empathize with the victim, John J, but nobody buys your high-and-mighty act.

I was impressed how he was able 'ride' the rope while he was off the ground. He didn't loose his balance for a moment.

 Wow he had remarkable balance considering the position he was in there LMFAO !!

No, it's just called living in/around a big city.  People get surlier the closer they are to an urban center... or sometimes a resort town.
