Thieves Steal an Entire Ski Lift in Czech Republic

According to the Prague Daily Moniter thieves stole an entire ski lift from a meadow in the northern town of Desna.

The police are trying to figure out if the thieves stole the lift to sell it (it’s valued at around $10,000 USD) or to set it up somewhere else.

I think that they must be selling it. Whenever ski bums muster up the motivation to get organized and coordinate a plan it usually results in five guys twenty miles into the backcountry, a snow fort, or a large bong.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.

In other weird ski news, a New Jersey ski resort is suing its insurance company over lack of snow.

    Is there a reason why you used a term for a sovereign state that hasn’t existed since 1993?

      Nope, just a slip-up made in haste. Thanks for the heads up.
