I was indeed this close to the slalom skier. Check out the red gate she's smacking down!
I climbed up the side of a mountain today. Man was it steep. I actually only made it 3/4 of the way up to the starting gate I was trying to reach before I decided perhaps it would be better to view the slalom run we were filming from the halfway point instead. Kudos to the film crew I'm working that did make it to the top! Muy impressive.
