Video: A Speedrider’s View of the French Alps

This video takes us to the French Alps where we get a first-person perspective of what it is like to speedride through those iconic mountains. What’s speedriding you ask? It is a combination of paragliding and skiing that allows participants to fly down a mountain, clearing trees and crevasses, while touching down momentarily to shred through the snow. We’ve shared videos of the sport before, but this one offers some particularly terrifying views. Buckle in, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
