It was 20 to 30 years ago but John Long was climbing on the Diamond and fell 400' into a snow drift and walked away. I remember Outside ran a article on it back then.

Skier: Started as a completely normal op, where the helicopters fly around and I start on signal. From there it's just a matter of following the line you had originally intended on skiing. After reaching full speed I discovered that I had taken a wrong line.

Narrator: He survived a 107 meter fall, but what actually happened?

Skier: There was a second there where I seriously scared "I am finished, I'm going to die", but after I was in the air, I realized I was going to land in the snow and the feeling of death left me. I set a goal of landing there.

Purple shirt: Surviving that there is something that few people could have done.

Skier: For me it was just a [accident? misunderstanding?], but now it's become so much more....Occasionally I...not very often but sometimes I'm like "What are you pissed about?" I mean, there's no reason to be pissed. You're here. You're alive.
