^The moment before his legs imploded
Not sure what the YouTube algorithm is up to these days, but I’m not complaining.
This video was uploaded to YouTube in 2010, and shows a skier breaking both of his legs after smashing on to a flat landing from a kicker at Keystone Resort, CO.
You can hear the impact very clearly. Ouch.
Anybody else a little suspicious about that terrain park set up? Looks like he keeps plenty of speed heading into that final kicker, but he doesn’t clear the table top.
The video’s uploader pinned the following comment about the incident:
Ryan: “Idk why YouTube is pushing this out to everyone suddenly! Just to update, I ended up breaking both legs (bilateral tib/fib fractures) from just the compression due to landing so hard. Got pins in/ taken out and made a full recovery!”
