Skier Falls Down Side Of A Mountain Backwards (VIDEO)

This story has a happy ending, promise. A skier, getting ready to film himself heading down a massive mountain, fell backwards off a cliff, falling what seems like hundreds of feet and survived.

Though we don't know where the skiers are (his friend can be heard in the background), it's pretty scary stuff no matter where you are. Lesson learned: Don't put your skis on while you're facing down the wrong side of a mountain. The video gets interesting around the :42 second mark.

This video is nearly as good as watching Elle magazine Creative Director Joe Zee learn how to ski at Snowbird Mountain Resort.
