Once I was working as a ski instructor, as it as the only work I could find after flaming out at Nationals. Little did we know that on the same mountain as the resort was a secret government lab that was testing genetic alterations on spiders. These alterations not only grew the spiders to enormous sizes, but also made them resistant to cold weather. Near the end of the season, the spiders got out and started attacking the guests. A group of promising national team members had just arrived for some training, so luckily they were able to help a bit, but they didn't repect me and my washed up skills. In the end, I led a daring plan to corrall the spiders in the halfpipe by leading them down the mountain with my nifty skiing while holding a flare (because they're attracted to light, of course). After getting them into the halfpipe, about a half dozen soldiers were able to shot down the spiders. While showing the young students my moves, I not only won their respect, but I impressed the attractive scientist who helped uncover the nefarious government plan.
I was with a film crew that travelled to the Austrian Alps near the (former) Yugoslav border to film three extreme sports enthusiasts being chased down by an avalanche for a commercial. What we didn't know, however, is that our filming near the secret hideout of Slobodan Pavle, a Serbian war criminal. Accidentally catching him on film, we become locked in a life-or-death chase for their lives
I used to work at a ski area and started dating the owners daughter. Turns out she was kinda crazy. Used explosives to kill her both her parents, then she tried to kill me. All the while she was sleeping with my half brother, and worst of all, he was in on the whole thing. I'm didn't really stop the attacks, but I played a role in it.
