A drunk man kicks off opening day of Colorado's ski season at Arapahoe Basin by falling off a ski lift. There were no chairlift malfunctions, more so a user malfunction.

Friday marked the opening day of the ski season in Colorado. A 21-year-old man fell off of a chairlift right around the time of the last run on the Black Mountain Express at Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort. He then walked out on his own, after falling 19 feet from the last tower during the last run.

The man seemed to be drunk according to multiple people. Thankfully, the man is okay. It's unclear whether he had his bar pulled down on the chairlift or not.

You should always pull your bar down if you've got one. Remember to watch your head and you can now head to Arapahoe Basin a whole week earlier than last year.

Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort is the first open for the season in North America. This is what 18 inches of powder and the excitement of opening day looked like:
