Miraculously Angel Collinson was left with nothing but some bruises after falling more than 1,000 feet down the side of an Alaskan mountain while filming the movie "Paradise Waits", footage of which was released last week and it really needs to be seen to be believed.
"I was skiing down pretty fast, but totally reasonable speed for what I normally do, and I hit some icy, chunky snow and it kind of bounced my ski around," Collinson told ABC's Good Morning America. "This happens to us a lot but in this case it kind of bumped my ski up above me to my left and my body kept going down to my right and then that’s when I started falling."
"At first I was trying to slow myself down with my arms, but then once I started picking up speed I realized that I was going to be falling for a while and the snow was icy and there was big icy snowballs," she said. "As I was tumbling, I covered my face and protected my head with my arms and I kind of just held on until I stopped."
Collinson is happy for the video to be seen though, saying that Teton Gravity Research, a Wyoming-based adventure and action sports media brand, are "using it just so people can learn from it."
What we've learned is that we're never going skiing ever again.
