NFL Mascots Show Off Terrible Skiing Skills At Lake Louise (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

WATCH: NFL Mascots Are Terrible At Skiing

One probably won't be surprised to hear that mascots have a hard time handling themselves on the slopes.

A video released by Banff Lake Louise Tourism this week shows NFL mascots slipping, sliding and tumbling down the hill at Lake Louise ski area last weekend - proving that giant bobbleheads and heavily constructed costumes are probably the worst thing one can wear with skis strapped to feet.

The opening seconds of the video show TORO of the Houston Texans and Rampage of the St. Louis Rams going head-to-head in the "Super Bowl of Slalom," before TORO quickly veers off course, smashing into and over a boundary marker.

The mascots were visiting Alberta on an annual conference, and took their antics from the field to the slopes for an afternoon of wintry fun.

In the video the mascots (try to) limbo, snowboard, stick fight and even woo the ladies.

Included in festivities were Freddie Falcon of the Atlanta Falcons, Sir Purr of the Carolina Panthers, K.C. Wolf of the Kansas City Chiefs, TORO of the Houston Texans, SWOOP of the Philadelphia Eagles, Rampage of the St. Louis Rams, Sourdough Sam of the San Francisco 49ers, T-Rac of the Tennessee Titans and Staley of the Chicago Bears.

Freddie Falcon proved to be, bird?...of the day, edging out TORO to take the title of fastest mascot on skis.
