Me falling in AK
April 17th, 2012
Generally I’ve made it through the last couple winters without any major crashes (knock on wood). This week filming with Warren Miller I’ve taken 2 pretty good tumbles. The first I tomahawked pretty good and lost my GoPro so unfortunately I lost all the footage from the crash and the day which was our best. On my second big crash we weren’t filming because the sun was no longer on the face we were skiing, so I took fun run with another GoPro on a line I had already skied. The line was a pretty simple steep face into about a 20 foot cliff band. I was trying to lose a little speed coming into the cliff when I hit a hard piece of snow or a rock and the sluff took out my tails simultaneously. I was fine, just another lesson learned: don’t throw speed checks in the gut where the sluff is going.
