Have a nice trip! Hilarious moment a group of Scottish snowboarders try to get to grips with a ski lift

  • Three snowboarders try to grab hold of a drag lift, but all three fail spectacularly
  • Man taking video howls with laughter as he watches friends fall over very quickly
  • One of them, on his second go, holds on after falling and is dragged up the slope

This is the hilarious moment three Scottish men make complete fools of themselves when trying to use a ski lift. 

Video footage shows the three men trying to grab hold of a handheld ski lift – known as a drag lift – in an unknown location. 

A snowboarder in a yellow jacket first tries to grab hold of the lift, before falling over in just a matter of seconds. 

He is able to go a yard or two before falling

The next two men in the trio fare no better when they step up to the plate. 

Neither of them make it more than a yard before falling over to howls of laughter from their friend filming the ordeal. 

Several people are then seen very easily able to grab hold of the rails and slowly go up the slope.

Included among them is a child who is able to easily navigate the drag lift.

However, our Scottish trio soon return for more punishment. 

One of them steps up to the plate and falls over in a matter of seconds, but holds onto the lift and lets himself be dragged up the mountain. 

At this point even the other people in line are joining in with the laughter.

One of them decides to try for a second time, but holds onto the lift and lets himself be dragged up the mountain after falling

Another one of the Scotsmen tries his luck again, before also falling over promptly. He, however, did not hold on afterward. 

It’s at this point in the video that we see a half-drunk beer belonging to the man holding the camera. 

He holds the beer up as he films the end of the video, which shows young children once again easily using the drag lift.
