This skier took the fast, painful, way down a mountain

That’s professional skier Ian McIntosh tumbling 1,600 down an Alaskan mountain.

He was shooting a skiing and snowboarding movie at the time.

The movie’s producer says McIntosh fell into a trench during one of his first turns, and had no way to stop.
