Ski flip trick goes wrong
Monday December 2, 2013 - Email this article to a friend

A skier tries to flip his ski off in the style of Didier Cuche. Unfortunately it does not quite go to plan and flies over his head and impales itself in a parked bus. Or does it? There is specualtion it is Cuche himself.

The video has been posted on You Tube.

Keep your eyes on the guy in orange trousers to the left of the screen as he skis down in Solden, Austria.

He is clearly a good skier.

The video was posted on Friday, November 29th.

We have no idea who the skier is but there is some online speculation that it might even be Cuche himself.

There is also a question about the video's authenticity. It may all be a practical joke.

Take a look and make your own mind up.

What do you think? Could this be the same man?

If authentic it has its more serious side, the bus driver is not amused, but it could have been far more serious had the ski hit a person.

Or indeed if there had been passengers aboard the bus.

And here's how its done properly as shown by the ex-Swiss racer, Didier Cuche.

And here's how Didier Cuche suggests you can do it.

And here is Didier himself from the angle of another camera.... great stuff Mr Cuche.

 

For the spirit of the mountains
