Youtube video of skiing train wreck? (St. Anton?)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, 

 

I'm on a quest to find a youtube clip I saw posted here once. It was a video where throngs of skiers kept sliding and falling over at the exact same spot. Literally dozens of people would ski down and fall over on the same bit of ice, over and over again. It might have been filmed at St. Anton, or maybe somewhere else in Austria... 

 

If anyone can use their youtube-fu to find the video, I'd love seeing it again!

Closest I could find... it's in Austria, but only a handful of people :

I know the one he's thinking of, I thought it was at St. Anton and Cerebral Vortex had pointed me towards one, but it wasn't the one. The one I think Metaphor and I are both thinking of was narrow, looking down the trail, and one skier after another falls and falls and falls. I seem to recall a wall or embankment off to skiers left.

Pretty funny, and it's interesting to see who stays up and who doesn't, who stops his or her slide and who doesn't.  Snow boarders seem to have the hardest time stopping once they're down.

Watched all three a few times. It's instructive to see the very few (maybe three or four over all the videos, not counting the guys who manage an extended side slip.) that MAKE it. Weight forward. Small turns, light on edges. No turning using the shoulder.

It's good to see the numbered team jersey being the universal beater dress code all over the world. :cool

Only if you are on the German National Team.

The thing I love is the fact that there's a patch of ungroomed snow just to the skier's left that will bypass the entire icy patch and no one takes it. Like a bunch of lemmings, sliding down the ice.

A number of the skiers deliberately slept it, laying down on the ice rather than falling.
I liked the skier who stayed up after the snowboarder hit the tails of his skis.
The problem EVERY skier has in the video: they're all using crutches (AKA 'poles'), and as a result have lousy balance.

A better explanation of the continuous train wreck can be found on the following thread

 

75% of you have wrong skis.
