Since the camera was positioned so close to the skier’s
face, the video was a bit scary to watch. I actually had no idea what to expect
from the video.
I was surprise to see the skier fall unexpectedly. I felt bad after the skier
fell, but luckily he appeared unharmed. He was able to put his glasses back on
following the fall, so he couldn’t have been hurt too badly.
In my opinion, the only lesson that we should learn from the video is to be
mindful of where we are going. The guy in the video seemed to run straight into
an object, perhaps even on purpose? It’s hard to tell why he didn’t try to
avoid the object. I’m tempted to think that the video was staged.
At the beginning of the video, the people in the background appeared to be
enjoying a snow day. I’m wondering why they didn’t rush to the skier’s rescue
after the fall. It makes me want to believe that the fall was either on
purpose, or it wasn’t too bad.
I just think that the overall video was strange to watch.
The wipeout looks pretty scary because they’re on a steep
incline (can’t tell if it’s a black, double black, etc.). From what I can tell,
it looks like the person who wiped out was pretty out of control when they did,
because the person taking the video was able to stop pretty quickly. They seem
to be okay by the end of the video because they’ve slowed down or stopped, and
there’s someone to help them at the bottom. As a skier, this video seemed scary
because the original fall resulted in an uncontrollable slide down the trail.
The video didn’t feel particularly staged, and because it seemed so
uncontrolled it’s not funny. Since we don’t actually see what happened at the
beginning of the fall, it would be better to at least see if the person ended
In this video depicting a high speed ski crash, the
professional skier appeared to have lost control and then took a big fall. With
that said, I’m sure the skier is fine because his outfit provided much protection.
Not to mention, he can be seen talking to reporters at the end of the video.
Most distracted viewers probably didn’t even notice that his ski broke in half
after it was detached. The detached ski shows the strong impact of the skier’s
fall. It seems like both the skier and the ski took a beating.
I thought this video was really scary. Fortunately, the professional wasn’t
hurt badly, but the fall could have been a lot worse, even deadly. It was so
great to see him standing tall at the end. He is definitely an inspiration to
the skiing community.
I think that the video was authentic. The only lesson that could be learned is
that practice makes perfect.
