Speedflying is a unique melding of skiing and paragliding. Those who take part in the activity climb up a mountain then proceed to ski back down, using their parachute to gently lift them over obstacles or see them down particularly steep slopes. It is an interesting mix of outdoor sports to say the least and the results are often spectacular.
Recently the GoPro BombSquad went to Alaska to put their skills to the test. The result is the short but excellent video below that captures them skiing through fresh powder and sailing through the air. They make it look effortless and fun, but I don’t think you’d ever catch me trying this.
