Excuse us for toning down the official title of this video "Snowboard Carnage Part 1! The Ultimate 2012 Slam Section: Absinthe Films", but we don't believe in tabloid journalism nearly as much as we probably should. Having said that, this video IS full of heavy snowboard carnage!

Getting a part in an Absinthe movie requires pushing the limits of progression and personal comfort zones. In pursuit of that progression there are plenty of slams, scorpions, tomahawks, rag dolls, close calls, and falls of every variety. Check part 1 of this cringe-worthy collection of snowboarding bails and fails from the world's top pro snowboarders. No pain, no gain.
