The National Geographic Adventure Blog has a great video of Francois Bon, one of their Adventurers of the Year, speed riding down the Eiger and Aconcagua. What’s “speed riding” you ask? That’s the insand activity of climbing up a mountain, then jumping off the summit with a pair of skis on your feet and a parachute on your back. The result is an adrenline fueled ride down the side of the mountain that is half-skiing, and half-flying, and all fun! Check out the video to see what I mean.
