Ouch – Tuckerman Ravine gives new definition to the term “ragdoll”

It is really hard to refrain from laughing while watching this skier garage sale and proceed to ragdoll down Tuckerman Ravine in New Hampshire. A quick read from the totally legitimate source of Wikipedia states that almost all of the runs in this glacial cirque range between 40 and 55 degrees, and due to high avalanche danger most people brave this beast in the spring. It appears that the Tuck claimed the physical wellness of at least two people when this video was shot and we’re hoping that the second guy was ok, but it was just way too funny watching him tumble down Tuckerman Ravine.

In parting we have one thing to say—it probably wouldn’t have happened on a snowboard.
