This is intense.

A snowboarder became trapped on a cliff at Blackcomb ski resort, BC in the Spanky’s Ladder area “a couple of weeks ago.”

It’s being reported that this guy was rescued after hanging onto this cliff for 1-2 hours before ski patrol was able to rescue him.

He was reportedly uninjured and seen drinking at beer at the GLC in town this same afternoon.

Video below:

“Here’s the better, original footage of the guy stuck on a cliff I filmed a couple of weeks ago. I was coming out of the Spanky’s Ladder zone on Blackcomb with the groupe I’m coaching, when we saw a bit of commotion and, eventually, this poor guy perched halfway up a nasty cliff with no way up or down. I had with me the camp video camera, so I was able to get a few good close-ups of him hanging on for his life. As comical as it was that anyone would keep going and get themself into such a bad spot, we where also all very worried for him. Shortly after, 6-7 patrollers started showing up with lots of ropes, but we had to leave before we could see the actual rescue. I heard that after 1-2 hours they managed to get him out of there. He was seen later having a beer with his buddy at the GLC. He’s alright!
