Remember the early days of skiing was simply skiing? People strapped on skis and went down a mountain. Then they went back to the top of the mountain and did it all again. Over and over. Ah, the good 'ol days!
But nowadays, that's boring. This guy, a skier in Washington, made what he referred to as a "valid attempt at a backflip over the Mount Baker highway". Valid attempt, yes. Unfortunately, it' wasn't executed perfectly and he ended up taking a mountain of snow to the face. IN THE FAAAAACE!
