Skier's Pole Exposed in XXX Mishap

1/6/2009 1:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This poor guy didn't realize his lift pass came with an impromptu upside down peep show.



According to The Smoking Gun, this bizarre chairlift mishap left the Vail skier dangling head over heels for 15 minutes freezing his ass off -- for reals!

Employees of the Blue Sky Basin eventually got the man down before he could fall through the, er, crack.

BTW -- in the guy's defense, it was really cold.

Several other sites identify that skier by name. Apparently Micah Rangel is going to get a lot of teasing from his ski buddies, who forwarded pictures of the brief 'hang-up' to every news agency in the US. Good joke, guys!

The smoking gun says he has a good cause for a lawsuit. I hope he gets the last laugh.
