Skiing an extreme line is one thing. BASE-jumping is another. Combining the two to race an avalanche over a cliff, well, that’s another thing all together.
Watch as Portland-based friend-of-the-The Clymb Matthias Giraud and Stefan Laude try to outrun an avalanche in the French Alps. This is beyond extreme skiing, beyond daredevilry: This is pushing the limits of life and death.
Giraud, known as the Super Frenchie, is sponsored by Cushe and GoPro, among many other brands, and has completed many successful big mountain ski BASE-jumps, but this leap is perhaps the most adrenaline-soaked stunt in his death-defying resume.
Don’t try this at home.
