Matt's ski base vid

Recommended Posts

This is a link to a cool ski base shot. It was shot in the Jackson Hole Wyoming backcountry; near Rendevous with an avalanche!

Way to go Mr. Combs. did he use a rope to get to the beginning of the shot or just ski kind of slow, hence not making this video clip? anyone? matt?

Nice jump & very sweet vid. But I honestly have to question the judgement of the dude. Avalanches sure make great video, but if conditions are obviously unstable, in my book that is a no-go for a skibasejump as your parachute won't help you if your getting swept over a cliff in a cloud of moving snow. Even if u manage to straightline out of it and huck the cliff (which I can tell you is by far not as easy as everybody thinks), 15+ tons of snow will plain simply collapse your wing when they fall on it. And nobody will take that line from you anyhow, so you can just wait for safe conditions.
Sweet vid though.
