Watch this skier fall 1600 feet and live! It will definitely get you in the mood for the upcoming ski season, or at least encourage you to sign up for a lesson!

Pro skiing veteran, Ian McIntosh, almost died when he fell skiing the Neacola range in Alaska. He fell into a trench on one of his lines and was smart enough to pull his airbag and then tumbled all the way to the bottom. He cartwheeled over 1,600 feet in under a minute! I'm always looking to improve my speed on the mountain, but I'll pass if this is how you get down the mountain quickly.
