The madness is documented from a witness riding the lift above. Apparently patrol had just opened Scott’s Chair, which was packed with fresh snow for the eager weekend crowd. After this stampede ravaged the slope, we'd be surprised if there’s even a base layer left.

VIDEO: Benedikt Böhm Skied Across the Alps In 36 Hours

I know, I know, skimo racing is super dorky. It involves Lycra, skinny skis, and lots of walking. But you have to admit, moving light and fast through the mountains is pretty impressive when it means you can traverse an ENTIRE mountain range in one push.
