Terrifying moment skier lunged down VERTICAL run in a 5ft-wide crevice in the Alaskan wilderness... and survived to tell the tale

e tale This is the moment a daredevil skiier flies down a vertical crevice in the Alaskan wilderness. Cody Townsend, 31, from California, pictured inset right, took to the Tordrillo Mountains, 75 miles northwest of Anchorage to perform the death-defying stunt. A video shows him peering down the run before taking a deep breath and bombing it down at high speed. He is seen weaving steadily through the snow, managing to avoid the sharp rock which towers above him on each side.
