VIDEO: Skier Sends Unplanned Huge Cliff @ Telluride

SnowBrains |

A guy was skiing at Telluride ski resort in Colorado and decided to follow some tracks down a nice, mellow powder field.  The field abruptly ended up in an enormous cliff named “Blowhole.”

This skier realizes his impending doom just before careening off the Blowhole cliff and lets out a barbaric yawp.

“I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.” – Walt Whitman

Unfortunately, he speed checks just before taking off which allows him to make contact with the cliff’s face multiple times before reaching the ground.   

We don’t know exactly what happened to this kid, but he must have been injured in some way, shape, or form, right?  Regardless, patrol says he’s ok, which means his injuries mustn’t be too bad, which is great news.

Be careful when following tracks out there humans.

  1. I have heard of someone doing this and not realising they were following a kite boarder. They went straight over a cliff and lived to write up to story in a mag for pilots.

  2. Rule of thumb when following tracks at a resort you don’t know well. Make sure there are many, not just a few. A few could mean some very skillful locals going to hit a cliff…when you follow could end like this.
