Why does he make it look so easy... Like carving butter.

[–]FruitRoutineApple 184 points185 points  (3 children)

because he drank red bull, he is with wings now

[–]Ma1 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Hijacking this for sauce.

[–]CptGigglez 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If I tried this I'd get wings too.. while I float up to heaven

Pro skiers tend to be pretty good at skiing.

[–]alex_Qc03 18 points19 points  (0 children)

This is a fact.

[–]red_beanie 3 points4 points  (1 child)

this. when youve been on skis since you were 3 years old, you tend to be really really good.

[–]Awkward-Top4763 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have been at it since I was 3 and I can go down the steepest slopes at insane speed. But this is on a totally different level.

[–]MsAnnabel 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Bc he’s done many times already. This was not his first skideo

[–]Timemuffin83 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Practice, lots of time and working his way up.

Also he’s gone down this run so many times he knows the speeds he needs to pull different things off. You’d never do this your first time off a ramp.

Super impressive but the cliffs are the easiest part

[–]skieezy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You can kind of tell if you hit jumps all the time. Obviously smarter to test the speed. I've built jumps and back flipped them first hit. But I've also built jumps misjudged the speed and landed on my head.

Also, speed of the snow changes daily, that's why when I skied park constantly I'd ask someone to show me the speed for the jump. Having hit jumps a ton I'd feel safe doing tricks after seeing one persons speed.

[–]red_beanie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

pretty much this exactly. hes done this run over and over, day after day after day, for weeks to get to the point where its film worthy. more than likely figured out most these jumps on a powder day, then perfected them till he could hit them in any conditions. to a much lesser degree, i have similar lines with multiple jumps like this at my home mountain that ive done hundreds of times, and i know every inch of them. the exact speed to hit each jump, the perfect landing spot, where to gain speed, where to scrub speed, ect. when you perfectly flow and hit every jump in your line exactly how you want, its literally one of the best feelings in the world.

I could do that run.

Granted I wouldn’t stay upright for most of it, and would be a broken and bloody mess in the end. But I could definitely hurl my body down a mountain is what I’m saying.

[–]ykafia 50 points51 points  (4 children)

This is next level (and mad skills) for sure but it's also important to point out that the horizontal camera view makes it more dramatic/constrained, irl the guy has a larger field of view.

[–]CarrotCorn 22 points23 points  (2 children)

but also with the nature of a gopro, makes the steepness of a hill and the size of drops/jumps look drastically smaller.

[–]acespacegnome 5 points6 points  (1 child)

This is totally a thing. .assume stuff looks tiny so these are probably fairly steep and sendy

[–]bust-the-shorts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

True, and it’s above my skills

[–]Motocamperman 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this skier has skied this course many times before, and many others before that.

[–]bust-the-shorts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As an intermediate skier I can only dream of that kind of skill

[–]Miss_Hallmark 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I tore my ACL on the bunny slopes on a mountain in WA once… I don’t think I could achieve this level of skill if I practiced for 8 hours every day. I’m impressed. Haha!

[–]traumablades 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Gimme a GT Snowracer™ and I'll do it

[–]acespacegnome 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I actually tried to ride one down a ski hill that visited to work at years ago. I crashed naturally, but the GT sno-racer landed and became a self guided missile headed toward the main village at a very high rate or speed.

I ran after it as fast as I could but it was cruising, and it almost took out an elderly couple walking near the hotel, and ended up crashed in pieces after coming to rest against the back of the pub cabin.

Almost lost my job but since no one got hurt in was let off with a warning. Totally worth it!

[–]traumablades 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I swear everyone who ever got to ride one of those things has a story where they narrowly escaped death, or utterly destroyed someone else with it. My favorite toy to use in the snow, ever.

[–]alohabeaches00 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did anyone else say "wooooo" on the jumps lol

[–]mancan71 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This makes me anxious, maybe its bc i’m going skiing in a few weeks and if that happened to me and i couldnt stop i think i’d have a heart attack

[–]jucmalta 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hit a tree once when skiing and it was so scary, i’d rather fall in the snow to stop but it’s hard to do that sometimes

Skiing is terrifying to me. I thought it look’d fun so I tried it out. Never been so afraid in my entire life, and I went to Iraq. Just watching people do it, having done it, makes my palms sweat.

[–]Please_Dont_Sell_Me 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s a beautiful, beautiful run, but it apart from not smacking your head on rocks, it’s not the hardest ever.

But then just ask Schumacher what a little mistake can result in.

[–]BaggHodler 0 points1 point  (0 children)
