Skier Films Himself Falling Off Massive Cliff

Some of you may have seen this already. It is literally ripping up the ski and climbing forums across the internet.

Austrian Stefan Ager climbed to the top of a peak on the Stubai Glacier in Austria, with the intent to ski the extreme terrain below. Unfortunately, as he was clipping his boot into his ski, he slipped and literally fell thousands of feet over rocks and steep snow fields. Fortunately, he survived with only bumps and bruises.

Normally, such a story would be in our weekly news round-up and would get a couple of sentences, not a blog in and of its own. But this particular incident is special. Ager didn't just survive his ordeal, he had a helmet cam on during his entire fall.

The footage is below:
