Exposed Stump Causes Skier to Scorpion
Occurred on January 4, 2020 / Stowe Mountain Resort, Vermont, USA
Info from Licensor: "I had hit this jump in the trees of Stowe Mountain Resort twice before and was fine. So, I was gonna try to do a trick off it while my brother videoed me with his GoPro. There was less snow on the jump then before, which caused my skis to pop off from hitting the exposed stump. I fell forward and landed on my head, going full scorpion from the momentum. The end result was a sore back, bloody nose and cuts on my chin and face. No bones were broken, and I skied a full day the next day. Although my Ruroc helmet broke in the process, I believe its full face mask is the reason I got away without a broken face.
