A group of young skiers jumped into action, using a piece of heavy duty snow control fencing to help cushion the boy's fall.

Gabriel Nielson said it was difficult to convince the boy to let go.

"At one point, we were just like, 'OK, you just need to trust us, you just need to drop," he told Global News. "And so then he dropped, and we caught him."

The boy was uninjured from the fall.
