A beginner skier lost his skis after an epic front flip fail.

Matthew Bailey, 22, was skiing at the Pas de la Casa ski resort in Andorra on January 10, when he decided to step it up.

Using a ramp to fly over the rail, the amateur alpinist threw himself into a front flip but landed on his back, causing his skis to shoot off.

Matthew, from Manchester, said: “My first reaction was ‘where are my skis going’ cause I really felt them pop & was worried they’d gone sailing into the crowd.

“In my previous attempt to flip, I landed badly and I couldn’t breathe for a couple of days after.”
