Here is another one, very sober too but in a different way. Very surprising production from Redbull; you almost want to be friend with the guy (Jérémie Heitz), unlike the other freeride heroes that RB usually portrays...

So solid, Rod. So solid. Great piece. Wow.

Imagine yourself in a 55 degree ravine, with over 6" of super-heavy fresh spring slush with only heavy skis, 3-pin bindings and leather shoes. Seriously, there is no other way to go down. That was 1988! Those guys ROCK!: )


The old 80's gear actually worked pretty good, it just took a lot more stabilizing muscle. And when things went wrong they did so in spectacularly comical fashion.
