The skier in this video is a friend of mine who gave me permission to post as long as I didn't share his name. From the crash, he suffered a mild concussion and a broken femur. I wanted to post this as a reminder to all skiers that it is okay to take it easy and ski like a gaper in certain circumstances. NEVER be afraid to use extreme caution, even if your friends are filming! To this day, I think as a filmer that the presence of my camera may have influenced him to send this chute with so much speed that day. Two summers in a row now I have witnessed serious injuries that have change my outlook on not only the way I ski, but also the way I live. Two summers ago was an even worse crash that left the rider in even worse condition than this, but luckily he is doing well now too. I want this post to leave a positive impact on skiers in that it is always okay to take things slow, even if that means not getting the shot and looking goofy on the way down. Always take into account the consequences that can result from your actions! Ski careful!
