Fan-Powered Skier Zooms Around Seattle Amid Heavy Snow

An intrepid skier took to Seattle’s snow-covered streets powered by a large fan on his back, as heavy snowfall affected the city on February 13.

This video by Melissa Crosetto shows the “Fan Man” leaving a gas station before zooming off up a hill.

“We saw the contraption he had and asked him if we could take video/photos. He then strapped into the most genius invention I’ve ever seen in my life,” Crosetto told Storyful. “Fan Man is my hero. Long live Fan Man.”

Around nine inches of snow was recorded at Seattle-Tacoma Airport, which was the sixth most for a day since 1946, according to the National Weather Service. Credit: Melissa Crosetto via Storyful
