    Professional skier Ian McIntosh survived a 1,600-foot fall down the Neacola mountain range in Alaska earlier this year. 

    The terrifying ordeal was caught on camera during the making of the ski and snowboarding flick "Paradise Waits," produced by action sports company Teton Gravity Research. The company uploaded the footage to YouTube last week.

    The company said McIntosh, 24, accidentally fell into an unseen five-foot-deep trench during one of his first turns. McIntosh said in his blog post that, "From there, my slough took over and their was no way to stop, I pulled my airbag to help prevent against any possible trauma injuries as I tumbled to the bottom."
