Snow covering the terrain effects depth perception....just sayin' Unimpressed

- 2 jumpers with 900 and 200 jumps were jumping from ... about 4,500 feet
- they decided they wanted to get extended free fall time so switched off their AADs before the jump

we are always more "intelligent" afterwards, but it seems that as you are aware you are jumping low and that you intend to pull "lower than usual", you should have some added awareness about your altitude.

condolences to the russian jumping family
