Epic Ski Crashes

I got bored so I decided to look up ski crashes on youtube. I just think its funny watching these guys crash and ski's and poles go flying everywhere. Here's a video I found that was pretty good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQyFqPBAvco
If you find other good ones feel free to share them.

Yeah the last one the guy is very lucky to be alive. My favorite is the one where the guy racks himself on the rainbow rail and gets stuck halfways.

You think it's "really funny watching these guys crash"... That's called really bad Karma. You might need to go volunteer at a soup kitchen for a couple of hours to make things right with the universe before you strap into your bindings.

But yeah, the last couple were pretty crazy...ouch

I'll agree that a lot of these were pretty serious and not funny, but some of them....

The funny ones were when he was like walking on his skis and when he got stuck halfway through the rail!

This initial crash is simply the most epic ski crash I have ever seen. They just explode and their stuff goes everywhere. By far the best example of a yard sale!

I do feel sorry for the woman though, who obviously hurt her leg pretty badly. Not sure about the guy because he isn't in the rest of the video, but hopefully he didn't hurt himself too badly.
This kind of stuff is always funny until the consequences arrive. I hope they both ended up ok and didn't suffer any long-term crap after this.

Should check out some of the hotshots trying to jump the rocks on Tuckerman's Ravine headwall. Skiis, poles and arms and legs flying everywhere. Train wreck in the watching.

Edit, here's a link to a few good ones:



Bad karma, eh. If there was no bad karma I wouldn't have any at all.

Nice! Funny how the snowboarders didn't seem to have problems in that yet the skiers were all over the place. They have more to worry about: 2 skis and 2 poles, whereas we only have to be concerned about the position of 1 board.

All these videos make me wonder why they tell us we need a leash to prevent a "runaway board" when skiers are the ones whose shit goes everywhere.
I just ignore those guys anyway. At some places here in MI they actually make it mandatory for snowboarders. This makes perfect sense for their step-in rental boards, which would freeze up and wouldn't click to my boots years ago when I used them. But my board and all other non-rentals have strap-in bindings, so I always just put my front pant leg over my binding straps so the can't see that there isn't a leash.

Man, I wish I lived out west somewhere.

You joking? The last two were the only ones even close to serious. And out of those only Simon got hurt.
