Man Arrested For Skiing The ‘Wrong Way’
In Jackson Hole Whoming, a man was arrested for skiing the wrong direction. The direction he was skiing--uphill.
JACKSON, WY. - If you are going to ski in Wyoming, don't try to do it uphill.
That's the lesson that retired doctor Roland Fleck learned the hard way after cops handcuffed the 78-year-old and hauled him off the mountain for unsafe skiing.
Fleck was arrested the morning of Feb. 5 after refusing ski patrollers' orders to stop. Jackson Hole Resort officials say avalanche danger and the presence of grooming machines made it unsafe.
