worst crashes you've seen?
 
the other day at Attitash while on a lift i saw a skiier fall right at the beginning of a run, loose both skiis and poles, then slide headfirst down the entire section of the run (which was a black--long and steep). he was perfectly fine, though.
so what are the worst (or funniest) crashes you've seen?

There's this one very young kid( 7 or 8) who just tries stuff in the park with no inhibitions. Battleship rail- hits the first kink and somehow manages to get three quarters of a backflip down before smashing his face. In he end the was fine though.

On Seymour last weekend, skier was trying the flat-down box. Skis slipped off both sides so he was straddling it, then one ski tip caught under the box. He fell forward on the box, lost both skis, and basically did a skeleton sled (without the sled) the rest of the way down the box. He wasn't hurt, but obviously embarrassed. I had bird's-eye from the lift. Just howled. :laugh:

I Was at Seymour about 2 months ago they had a competition there and one of the contestants was trying a double backflip, went short and smashed his face on the knucle.

Took him a few seconds to start moving but he got up and rode away.

One of my wife's coworkers was riding the chair at Copper a few weeks ago when the 15 year old girl died hitting a tree.

You don't want to hear the details.

shit. RIP. Kind of want to know the scenario, like when I hear about someone hitting a tree I either think of someone with high skill just mobbing then freak accident or someone with no skill out of control. Can you say which category the girl was in?

that would be scarring to see...accidents like those are always horrible, especially with her age

yea i know someone who brags about bombing straight down double blacks, but its just stupid since there's that risk of hitting something

This is why i wish somehow lessons are cheaper or included with buying a lift ticket.
Maybe more people will take lessons and accident like this can be avoided.
