While on scene Broke began speaking with her guests saying, “I’m here with Richard and Katie of the Utah Nordic Alliance,” she began, “and you guys are teaching me how to cross-country ski.”
Just as she asked her guests to give her some basics, she began to tilt backward and plop down into the snow, all the while never losing grasp of her microphone and ski poles. Richard even came down to help Brooke continue the interview.
