It’s not every day that a skiing-related video surpasses one million views on YouTube. Evidently the keywords “backflip” and “avalanche” paired together make for a successful recipe; Sverre Liliequist tossed a backflip while outrunning an avalanche (unknowingly) at the Swatch Skiers Cup last week, and the clip has now reached the golden mark—one million views.
