It worked out better for her than it did for Larry Duff, anyway.

This JOE went skiing before and found the blue slope fairly intimidating, so watching this alone gave us the shivers.

To be fair, it did the same to professional skier Angel Collinson, who, as reported by ABC Newslost control and plunged over 1,000 feet while filming the movie, Paradise Waits, in Alaska.

Surely she broke several bones? Nah. In fact, her reaction afterwards is cool as f*ck.

Take a look at this incredible fall and even more amazing escape in this short, but oddly beautiful, clip.

Speaking after the incident, in which Collinson only suffered minor bruises, she said:

"I was skiing down pretty fast, but totally reasonable speed for what I normally do, and I hit some icy, chunky snow and it kind of bounced my ski around," Collinson said.

"This happens to us a lot but in this case it kind of bumped my ski up above me to my left and my body kept going down to my right and then that’s when I started falling."

Still, we can't help but feel that Angel got off lightly, certainly in comparison to this poor fella.
