Speedgliding – a completely mad sport November 22, 2006

Posted by Al in : cool,transport,video , trackback

Now this looks to be one of the most intense pastimes I can imagine, yet it also makes a kind of sense and I can imagine doing this. Jump out of a helicopter onto a very high, steep slope and the ski down with a paraglider open as well. As soon as you are getting into trouble you pull on the cords to your paraglider and you are up in the air, then you can settle yourself back down to do some more seriously fast skiing. This video is down the Eiger, whether it’s the north face I don’t know. But it’s definitely fast.
