Paige takes a bad fall and cuts her head with a ski edge (check out all the blood!). That's ski patrolman Alex Filiss helping her out.


After being bandaged up by Patrolman Filiss, she skies down 50 yards to the next lodge (check out the blood still gushing from her head!):


Patrolman Filiss bundles Paige up for the ride down the rest of the mountain:
