That dark speck in the middle of all that snow is skier Ian McIntosh somewhere during a 1,600-foot fall down the face of a mountain in Alaska.

Pro skier Ian McIntosh was filming a scene for the documentary “Paradise Waits” when he fell 1,600 feet down an Alaskan mountain and managed to walk away. In footage of the fall, McIntosh’s voice can be heard every time he bounces, and when the ordeal ends he says clearly, “I’m OK.”
