A Skier Fell 150 Feet And Didn’t Get Hurt [Video]
What's your worst skiing experience? One of mine, when I was learning, was at Copper Mountain when I thought it would be a great idea to follow a couple guys into a closed-off area. They no doubt went for the deep powder. I, on the other hand, was not yet experienced enough to stay on top of that snow. I was in there for over an hour, trying to get enough footing to stand back up and somehow get some momentum with my snowboard. It was then that I learned: Don't ever stop on super deep powder!!
This guy's experience is just one reason I don't jump over edges if I can't see what's on the other side. Boring, maybe, but you can always come back around & jump that baby the next time once you know what you're in for.
