Fair warning- the video you’re about to see is pretty hard to watch.
The Big Couloir is one of the most challenging lines at Big Sky Resort, MT.
It’s regarded as a proving ground for big mountain skiers, and passengers on the Lone Peak Tram are treated to a spectacular view of the full route.
The video below shows what can happen when you fall on the Big Couloir.
SPOILER: It’s not pretty.
skiingkms2010: “On March 12th 2021 George missed his first turn in the Big Couloir and slid down the whole thing.
He dislocated and fractured his shoulder and broke his tib-fib. It will be a long recovery, but he should be skiing next year.”
Thank god that dude only suffered injuries to his shoulder and a broken leg.
You know it’s bad when you can hear somebody on the tram tell others not to watch as the skier is furiously sliding down the mountain.

It’s been nearly two years since the incident occurred.
Here’s hoping George has made a full recovery!
