And Then This Happened... Avalanche

Winter sports can be fun for just about everyone. Of course you need the right equipment for them. Luckily the gent in this picture is one of the best skiers in the country (at least according to the film). So that means he not only possesses the right equipment (sponsored by Schlitz of all things), but he is also very skilled. That must also go along with his ability to escape deadly ice and snow from avalanches!

This picture comes from the Roger Corman disaster epic, Avalanche. Time to give our olympic hopeful the caption he deserves.

And then this happened...

    "No," I said. "Tahiti is just another beach," I said. "I'd rather go skiing instead," I said.

    1. LOL. So so true. Even 007 and his lady love got smashed by the avalanche in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". They gotta teach tree leaping at MI6.
