Aspen is in full swing with the World Cup finals hosting the best skiers in the world for five days. And there’s been some fast skiing, which means some gnarly crashes, too.

And it’s obvious that these athletes who are flying down the mountain at 80 miles per hour aren’t in it for the money. They do it because they love it.
