Ran across this very funny short on alpine SAR.

Thank You!!

That was hysterical - and "true" on a bunch of levels too! Your link made me laugh out loud very first thing this morning and I'll likely smile about it the rest of the day.

It's a miracle that the skier survived at all.

OMG! Laughed until I cried! Not sure you can truly appreciate it without some significant SAR experience, but even then expect folks will find it incredibly funny.

I apologize for being a party pooper, but, as a longtime SAR volunteer, I didn't find it particularly funny.

Excellent art work and graphics, however.

The two rescuers even look like a couple of guys I know. Lucky and Mini.
