They say that what goes up must come down. And this adage certainly holds true in the case of this snowmobile and its pilot.

This harrowing video, filmed on a helmet camera and uploaded last week to the French edition of the action sports video site Zapiks, illustrates just one of the many things that can go wrong when man tries to defy gravity.

Just as the rider makes it to the top of a steep couloir, his snowmobile loses traction and the tumble begins. And just when we think the long fall has come to an end...well, you can guess what happens next.

Wired reports that the snowmobiler is French and Sportsgrid.com says the origin of the video is "unknown."

And, in case you're wondering, the title of the video translates to "Snowmobile 0 - Mountain 1."
