By

After retiring from Olympic competition, Australian Downhill skiers Jono Brauer and Craig Branch head to Points North Heli Alaska for what was to be their next adventure, although adrenaline levels are reset when Jono crashes on an exposed face and is swept over a 100 foot cliff.

This segment was originally broadcast on the TV program "Generation Snow" produced by Timothy Myers and pictures courtesy of Rip Curl. The voice on the other end of the radio is renowned photographer Tony Harrington.
