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.
