    Video: How a Ski Jump Looks from a Rear-facing Camera

    As an extra double feature, here are skiers Matthias Giraud and Stefan Laude out-skiing an avalanche by jumping off a cliff and then parachuting down the length of the mountain. This once-in-a-lifetime event took place on Aiguille Croche, a mountain in Megeve, France that peaks at 8,159 feet. Please do not try this in the outdoors.

    WARNING: The video below contains awesome. You might have to peek through your fingers.
