Ice axe... pshaw!

Postby swoodyut » Wed Jun 02, 2010 8:17 pm

Sorry if this is old news / already posted. But seeing as how my skiing currently tops out at the 'timidly advanced' level on good days at the resort, this made me go OMFG. I've heard of this sport and it looks exhilarating, and it's still fascinates me.

The end of that video is pretty freakin' scary. I wonder if they had a few extra pairs of underwear for him on the chopper.
