I am skeptical that video was taken by Schumacher. Two reasons:
- News reports at the time of his accident said he was skiing "off piste" (*); that is, not on groomed slopes. Yet that guy is zipping past other skiers and seems to be on a regular run.
- Schumacher's family has been pretty guarded about giving out information. It would inconsistent for them to put his GoPro footage on YouTube.
*) Here's how Wikipedia defines "off piste": off-piste skiing is skiing in the backcountry on ungroomed and unmarked slopes or pistes, including skiing in unmarked or unpatrolled areas either inside or outside of a ski resort's boundaries, sometimes in the woods. Unlike groomed cross-country and alpine skiing, the land and the snow pack are not monitored, patrolled, or maintained.
