Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

It's not so much skiing as it is going out on a precipice amd hoping for the best. He's got reasonably large dangly bits and a bit of crazy and pretty decent skill though.

@valais2, that first one isn't skiing; it's falling with style wink

He and I have the same ski outfit, beyond that there is no similarity whatsoever Laughing

At least Jamie Pierre realised that a helmet was going to make stuff all difference when doing something quite so stupid!

Jamie Pierre did it for Jesus. On that occasion Jesus seems to have indicated to him that it is not a good idea to jump off 100m cliffs, but gave him a chance to learn...

I switched it off after 30 seconds as I couldn't put up with the comedy, 1980-style Roobarb & Custard wobbly filming. What's that about?!

Load of 5h1te IMHO.

I literally have no idea why you would put yourself through something like this. Presumably it is a search for a big adrenaline rush? Eventually though it will become “tame”. Then what? Asking lions to sit whilst you clean their teeth?

@springbok45, exactly. I quite like the viewpoint actually - and a very robust camera pole to come out intact and in the right position at the bottom of the rock.

Including the Late, Great JP Auclair......

(BTW I generally hate heavy metal or similar sound tracks ... but The Tempest by Pendulum is something rather special. My youngster puts this on every so often to liven up the household - volume to 11).

I always think the first rule for all these lines should be that forward motion should exceed lateral motion by a factor of about 10. I really can't be bothered with videos of guys who spend all day climbing to the top of a peak only to sideslip or do slow jump turns / kick turns most of the way down.

@foxtrotzulu, I kind of feel same - many of the lines are more like people downclimbing with skis on. Incredibly skilful no doubt, but not really skiing. A less extreme line skiied with linked turns, even if they are very slow, also seems more impressive & relevant to me.

Saw somebody snap their leg trying to copy these kinds of extreme vids a few weeks ago.

He'd set his bindings too tight and they never released on the fall.

@Whitegold, @Whitegold, ...not good. Definitely not good. But for me this would not be a criticism of people who ski at the edge and let us see the results. It for sure is something to do with temperament and approach - I have an article coming up on ‘children should be fearlful but not scared when skiing - and certainly not fearless...’. Maybe it’s a crossover from climbing, where the people who survive are those who have a turnaround time and stick to it. Sure the eye is on the prize, but if you wreck yourself or die in the attempt, you’ve lost a sense of perspective and responsibility. The summit will be there next time, there’s always another day.

I try to push the envelope, but have no problem in stopping, or turning round, or saying ‘that is a VERY bad idea’. And this includes, when climbing with kids, NOT making a quick dash across a short snow field with a ‘you’ll die’ runout onto rocks, when we haven’t got crampons with us, but having to find a 1hr detour above it. The people who are still with us are (mostly) people who push the envelope slowly, examine risk, and whether a ‘go’ or ‘no go’ decision is the one to make. And can walk away without any problems But the fault of someone who fails to estimate their own ability, gets the kit and the context wrong, or think more of the glory than the personal achievement, lies not with people like Chad Sayers, or JP Auclair, but with their own temperament. That sounds harsh, and of course JP is not with us any more (that avalanche came from way above them, and the they didn’t trigger it) but I think that the Big Hills are unforgiving places. I’ve pushed it pretty far sometimes, and had to do some deep reflection afterwards.
