Slipping while you're getting on, bailing halfway up on the button lift, taking out your neighbour on the way off at the top (snowboarders, this one's for you): we've all been there. Rope tows, button lifts, chairlifts, they're all great inventions and they've revolutionised the sport of skiing, but sometimes they're more difficult than they look. What's the worst bail you've ever had on a lift? Does it compare to any of these gems?
