Pro skiing veteran, Ian McIntosh, narrowly escapes with his life after what TGR Co Founder, Todd Jones, says “was the most terrifying crash I’ve ever seen.” While filming for Paradise Waits up in the Neacola range of AK, Mac dropped into a line he thought he had studied thoroughly enough, only to fall into an unseen five foot deep trench on one of his first turns. “From there, my slough took over and their was no way to stop, I pulled my airbag to help prevent against any possible trauma injuries as I tumbled to the bottom,” he said. While attempting to regain his footing, Mac lost a ski and cartwheeled over 1,600 feet in under a minute. To check out his equally terrifying, less dangerous AK lines, get a copy of TGR’s 2016 ski and snowboard film, Paradise Waits.
