Ian McIntosh discusses his fall on “Good Morning America.”

Ian McIntosh was a guest on “Good Morning America” Wednesday after TGR released footage of the skier tomahawking more than 1,600 feet down a mountain face in Alaska’s Neacola range. The fall, which left McIntosh uninjured, occurred while filming for TGR’s “Paradise Waits” last year. McIntosh fell into a five-foot-deep trench on one of his first turns at the top of a line.

Highlights from the interview with ABC’s TJ Holmes include a well-placed advertisement for “Paradise Waits,” some product placement by The North Face, a possible F-bomb from Michael Strahan, and muggles non-skiers learning about avalanche packs. For more fun, set aside an hour or three this afternoon to read through these GMA Facebook comments.
