Professional skier, Ian McIntosh, has everyone in awe that he miraculously survived a 1,600-foot fall down the side of the Neacola mountain range in Alaska.
McIntosh, 24, was being recorded for the ski and snowboard film ‘Paradise Waits’ when he fell into a five-foot-deep trench on a turn. Unable to recover, he continued tumbling down the mountain after he exclaimed “No!” as he realized it was all downhill from there, literally.
While the camera keeps rolling, you can see McIntosh fall for nearly a minute — which likely felt like forever to him — before he finally stopped and called out, “I’m okay, I’m okay!”
Although we’re fairly sure that the fall was unintended, it made for a remarkable promotional video for the film.
Todd Jones — co-founder of Teton Gravity Research, the company that produced the film — said the incident "was the most terrifying crash I've ever seen," according to a blog post on the company's website.
