What Ian McIntosh Was Thinking When He Fell 1,600 Feet

Ian McIntosh's 1,600-foot fall down a shaded Alaskan spine went viral, landing our favorite bearded Canadian on prime time national TV. Mac managed to get out of this one unscathed, and although he's had far worse bails in his professional career, this one nonetheless earned him international fame.

Naturally, he was picked to Defend His Line in front of the rest of the TGR athletes at last year's International Pro Riders' Workshop, and as Mac tells it, the unique characteristics of getting this one particular line on film–that it only got 15 minutes of sun all day, and that at the exact moment the helis were supposed to be lifting off from base camp–made for a complicated approach that ultimately resulted in a slipped turn and a massive tumble.

In fact, most ski films are the opposite of thought-provoking, unless you count "Damn, that was a big cliff" as an insightful thought. The closest many flicks get to "deep" is an ironic or unintentionally-ironic nature shot paired with a voiceover quote about the "call of the mountains" or the "importance of protecting our environment" or "how humbling it is to be so small in such a huge landscape."

Throwback: Sammy Carlson Spinning Switch Off a Ski-Flying Jump

How many of us have watched ski jumping in the Olympics and thought about how cool it would be to see freestylers hit that same jump? Probably a good few, at least.

Video: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Legendary Alta Ski Patrol

Since its founding in 1941, Alta's Ski Patrol has become one of the foremost avalanche safety departments in the industry. The organization was the first in North America to use howitzers in avalanche mitigation, and was home to the continent's first avalanche dog. Considering that dogs and explosives are two of the coolest parts of being a ski patroller, those are pretty solid claims to fame, at least in our opinion.
