Drunk skiers pull intoxicated friend home through the snow

Loyal friends grabbed a leg each and dragged their friend all the way home

It all became a bit much for one skier, who after one drink too many had to literally be dragged home by his friends.

Video footage captured by a passerby shows a group of three friends and their arduous journey home through the snow after a night on the tiles in an Austrian ski resort.

Unfortunately for the man, believed to be Russian, his friends had also over indulged on the shots and being unable to carry him, decided to grab a leg each and drag him all the way home through the town of Mayrhofen.

At one point, the man can be seen attempting to resist being dragged, but after a couple of tries at sitting up decides it's too much effort and lies down again.

Amused fellow skiers were also caught on camera laughing at the two men steadfastly pulling their intoxicated friend along. Video footage of the incident has already amassed more than 800,000 hits on YouTube.
