Anyone who's ever ridden a chairlift will know that the thought of what would happen should you fall off is one that frequently crosses your mind.

What's less frequent is actually having to deal with that situation. Somehow this guy managed to find himself dangling off the bottom of a lift after (according to the video description) "trying to throw a snowball."

Despite his best efforts to regain his seat, he's eventually forced to let go and falls the best part of 60 feet to the ground.

Thankfully he suffered no serious injuries, but we can't help agreeing with his mate at the beginning of the video: "What the fuck are you doing?" Well quite.
