Skier Unknowingly Follows Tracks off Huge Cliff in Telluride

by Updated April 22, 2016

So this skier was out skiing some mellow powder turns, when his day takes a turn for the worse after unexpectedly following powder tracks directly off a huge cliff named "Blowhole" in Telluride, Colorado.  He pays for his decision badly, by getting raked over the cliff band as the camera goes off.  Looks like this would have seriously hurt.

Lesson of the day, is that you should not blindly follow the wrong tracks in unfamaliar terrain, or else you might face similiar consequences.
