Did he leave? Professional skiers somehow crash right into a huge pile of snow with an impressive face plant
- Felix Wiemers, 31, tried a difficult stunt while skiing in Tyrol, Austria
- The professional skier approaches a mountain ridge to continue skiing to the other side of the slope
- He sees plants in it and remains helpless with his skis in the air
This is the hilarious moment when a professional skier is planted on a slope before being flipped upside down because of a stunt failure.
Professional skier Felix Wiemers, 31, was skiing in Tyrol, Austria, trying to slide over a ridge.
Visual material shows Felix, from Germany, gently sliding and steering himself down a slope.

He then approaches the huge pile of snow in anticipation of reaching the other side.
But in a bizarre state of affairs, he takes an impressive frontal approach.
His body pushes forward and stands plants in the snow before it is turned completely upside down.

Felix is left helpless with his skis in the air and sprawls across the mountainside.
The sportsman wrote on Instagram: “That comb was tighter than I expected. The snow was really good – as you can see in the first turn when my GoPro was completely covered.
