He is an insane skier I follow him on Twitter and TGR. The line itself isn't remotely technical literally just makes two turns then BOOOOM guns it straight down about 55/65 degree face. Reckon he must have been hitting close on 100mph when he shoots out the bottom if it. Literally balls the size of watermelons one fall at that speed even in deep snow and your going to rag doll till you literally get pulled apart. Its fcking nuts. Some sick lines came out this week just before Xmas. Xavier De La Rue did one with his bro on sheet Ice which is also nuts check it out.

If you follow Teton Gravity Research on Twitter or just go to their internet page there are hundreds of them. Its for all down hill based sports very cool.

Personally not impressed. Two turns and nice snow.  Risk of death needs increasing.  At his skill level the exposure was non existent imo.

Im alright for a non mountain person I guess I certainly can ski better than all my friends who are competent. I wanted to compete in some amateur freeride competitions this year but I don't think I will be able to with work and stuff. Living here in the alps I ski everyday so am pretty useful I can hit basic tricks like 360s and backflips but not every single time and thats about my lot (16 st in ski gear kinda limits that lol), I can also shred a steep face very quickly. If I hadn't stopped skiing between 15/28 I would probably have been better but even up until then I only skied probably 2 weeks a year.
 
As with everything its relative though and compared to the kids raised in the mountains are better than you or I by the age of 15 regardless of what ever we do after. I skied with a 10 year old boy last season who literally blew my mind could hit tonnes of tricks, ski deep pow on steep lines and obviously at that age you bounce and don't care if you get hurt but he has had solid ski lessons twice a week since he was 2. Its cool to watch but at the same time frustrating because you will never ever get to that level.
