Here's the Most Terrifying Fucking Thing Ever

My wife loves to ski. She grew up learning with her dad, bombing down hillsides as a little girl and not really bothering to learn to turn so much as avoid obstacles. Every winter she buys a pass to one of the local resorts and then laments not getting to go as often as she'd like because she doesn't have a lot of ski buddies.

Growing up in the Midwest, my skiing experience is one outing at Hidden Valley, an artificial-snow-covered hillside in Missouri. I fell and busted my ass and swore I'd never do it again. But Kat has begged and cajoled and sweet-talked me enough that I agreed to go this winter when ski season kicks in.

Of course that was before I watched this:




Now I know, in my logical brain, that this isn't likely to happen to me on a public ski trail. After all, I've never skied. It's not like I'm going to hit the Black Diamond trail or venture into the back country to ski where the Park Rangers warn you not to. 


But holy shit, man. This makes me want to outlaw skiing entirely.
