A snow tuber at Michigan’s oldest ski area, Mont Ripley in the Upper Peninsula, took a nasty spill onto a cat track after flying out of the tubing park and it was all captured on camera by a passing skier. The video has been viewed 2.8 million times on TikTok and many questioned why the man didn’t stop to see if she was okay. In follow up videos he explained that someone was already coming to her aid as he passed and he later heard that she was alright over the radio. Glad she was uninjured, that was a nasty slam.
only at Mont Ripley! The girl goes flying off the hill from the tubing park straight through the trail and I to the t-bar. . #insta360
