Video: Epic Speedriding Through the Alps

We’ve seen some good speedriding videos in the past, but it has been awhile since we’ve come across anything like this one. What’s speedriding? It’s another name for speedflying, which is a combination of skiing and paragliding that allows people to literally fly down the side of mountains that they typically wouldn’t be able to ski. It looks like a lot of fun, and really opens up the possibilities for backcountry exploration.

In this video, we join a couple of speedriders as they blaze down some beautiful mountains in the alps, skiing past small villages, through deep canyons, and across some very steep mountainsides. Don’t try this at home folks. It isn’t for everyone.
