Avalanche Cliff Jump with Matthias Giraud

Skiing, you’ve got to love skiing. Browsing through those Snow and Rock mags wishing you were minted so you could just zip off to the Alps and go get baked and ski for a week or two. Sounds bliss. Unfortunately I’m stuck here watching videos of people skiing in the Alps wishing I hadn’t had spent my life savings over the bank holiday. Oh well, fun was had.

So how do you go about making skiing even more of an adrenaline rush? Well you combine it with base jumping – duh! And hey, I’m not talking about that pussy base jumping off buildings, I’m talking about base jumping off the side of a snow covered mountain that’s about to have an avalanche hit it – totally gnarly dude!

Here’s a video of Matthias Giraud (who’s pretty famous for combining base jumps and skiing) doing just that. Enjoy.
