Wicked Near Miss Between Two Skiers

A near miss, no matter what scenario, will scare the hell out of anyone. Once you get to the end of this video, you'll see that hold true just from the look at the lower skier's face.

So much to be said about all the wrong in this video. First, we all know the downhill skier has the right of way. Nobody has eyes in the back of their head, so they can't look up the hill. The rest of us have to look down. However, this person was crossing below a jump in the landing area, which is never a good idea. If you ever find yourself in a landing area, get out of it as quickly as possible or scream for help. Lastly, and most importantly, if you are in the position this camera guy was in, then be a spotter and help everyone out. He could've waved off either of them.

In any case, if you're like me, after the near miss, or more accurately, near hit, you'll have the same look on your face as the lower skier did. I hope both of them enjoyed the rest of their day because they almost died.
