LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON — What’s it like to jump off a cliff and crash into a tree?
Thanks to one Utah skier, now you can find out.
On Feb. 27, a Utah skier filmed point-of-view footage of him or her jumping off a cliff and colliding into trees. This happened at the Snowbird Ski Resort in Utah.
"It was a big powder day at Snowbird Ski Resort during my school break. I was enjoying quality pow and I decided to send a sizable cliff,” said the skier, according to the YouTube description page. “Unfortunately, I didn't check the landing and fell right into a tree. I broke one pole, my skis, one binding and my leg!"
Back on Jan. 26, fellow Utah skier Devin Stratton filmed footage of himself falling off a 150-foot cliff and surviving, according to the Deseret News. His video received more than 20,000 views and even made its way to CNN, Mashable and the Daily Mail.
He told KSL that the jump camp when he skied down Mount Timpanogos.
“I hit that little jump before the cliff and I was in midair thinking I had a landing, and I see the cliff so I turn sideways trying to stop," Stratton said. "I thought about my cousin who is quadriplegic from a car accident, and I thought I was going to be paralyzed for sure. And then as I skied further, I thought I was dead for sure because I saw how big the cliff actually was.”
