Watch This Terrifying Video of a Skier Who Falls 1600 Feet — and Survives

Somehow, professional skier Ian McIntosh survived with his life after tumbling all the way down the slope of one of Alaska’s Neacola Mountains.

In an extreme video posted last week by Teton Gravity Research, the Canadian skiing pro can be heard and seen cartwheeling down 1,600 feet after losing a ski.

“From there, my slough took over and their was no way to stop, I pulled my airbag to help prevent against any possible trauma injuries as I tumbled to the bottom,” he said.

Todd Jones, co-founder of the sports media company, says McIntosh’s fall “was the most terrifying crash I’ve ever seen.”
