A video has emerged of the moment a speedrider almost collided with a spectator at the Mount Baker Sesh Up 2017 event in Washington. As you can see in the clip below, they came very close to a crash that would have certainly caused serious injury.

That video comes from Eddie Hayes, a freelance photographer and director based out of Bellingham, Washington. According to a report from TMZ, it was filmed on May 21 during the Sesh Up event.
Sesh Up is an end-of-season party of sorts that brings skiers and snowboarders out to Mount Baker to session a huge step-up jump, and simply celebrate the season.
Per SNOWBOARDER’s recent photo recap of the event, Sesh Up is now well past a decade old and this year’s event was helped out tremendously by a fresh foot of late spring snow.
