Video: Speed Flyer Escapes Avalanche In The Alps
Speed flyers mix skiing and paragliding to make descents that wouldn't necessarily be possible on skis alone. Case in point, this video shows a speed flyer zipping off a high cliff in the Alps, just as a small avalanche rolls down the mountain around him. The result is a short, but pretty spectacular clip, that also happens go provide some wonderful views of the mountains near Chamonix, France. beautiful stuff.
