‘Ski Bum: The Warren Miller Story’ ,included a breakdown of the iconic ski film moment when the Egan brothers narrowly avoided falling 1000′ to their deaths as a massive cornice broke underneath them.
I know this is one of the most ski clips of all time, and please excuse my language here, but how in the f*ck did they survive?!
Hearing Dan and John Egan’s recounting of the story in the doc was incredible. You can watch it on Amazon Prime!
I also highly recommend purchasing Dan Egan’s new book ‘30 Years in a White Haze’. I’m taking longer than I should to read it (hey, I’m busy!) but it’s absolutely spectacular read so far. Look for a book review here on Unofficial Networks once I’ve completed it.
You can buy the book here.
It’s a must read for any skiing nut that wants an inside look at how one of freeskiing’s first icons left his mark on the industry along with the help of his equally crazy bother.
