A new video reveals footage shot by a skier as he descends a snow-covered mountain in Telluride, Colorado. He carefully avoids several small trees, but comes to a horrible realization as he approaches what appears to be a gently rising slope.
According to the Telluride Ski Patrol, the skier ended up with only a minor shoulder injury. Watch the video:

March 23, 2014 at 7:37 PM ET – Here’s one toy pet that may wind up in the “creepy” category, at least while it’s still attached to its box. Youtube user FightYourBoredom was doing some shopping for his niece recently, when he stumbled across this FurReal Friends “My Bouncin’ Kitty” toy.
Toy company Hasbro describes this feisty feline by saying “When you put your new little friend on the ground and pet her, she’ll bounce and spin like the happiest kitty ever!” Either that, or do her best imitation of a heavy metal artist at a concert. Watch the video:

Griffith is a crew supervisor for the California Conservation Corps, a state youth program that employs young people to plant trees, create salmon habitat, and build trails in the wilderness.
But there’s also a fair bit of dancing done on Griffith’s watch, as seen in a previously viral video of the boss man breaking it down alongside two of his workers and unofficial dance instructors. In his latest video, the “Mountain Man” shows his moves off to the sound of DJ Snake’s “Bird Machine” track:

March 15, 2014 at 6:40 PM ET – If you’re going to break out in a full-sprint, never do so on live television. Or at least not in a three-piece suit and dress shoes. This is the lesson that sports anchor Paul Cicala of KVOA in Tucson, Arizona learned yesterday.
Cicala was in Las Vegas, Nevada Friday to report on the college basketball game between the Arizona Wildcats and the Colorado Buffaloes for the Pac-12 semifinals. In the new video uploaded to Youtube, Cicala explains to a KVOA co-anchor that the game was expected to tipoff in only three minutes, which meant he would have to “speedwalk” into the MGM Grand Garden Arena so as not to miss any of the action. The award-winning journalist then handed his microphone to the cameraman before doing his best Usain Bolt impression. Watch what happens:

March 7, 2014 at 4:11 AM ET – Bad wipeouts happen to the best of surfers. But nothing will prepare you for the wipeout experienced by Aussie James Hollmer-Cross last Sunday, while surfing at Pedra Branca 16 miles South of Tasmania.
Award-winning cinematographer Tim Bonython was at the scene to capture footage of the horrific wipeout. Fortunately, Hollmer-Cross was able to walk away from the incident relatively unharmed. “I thought I was actually going to die,” the surfer explained in an interview after his mishap. “I thought I’d broken my back. But then because of that, it just rattled me that hard that I was just fighting.”
