This clip (called the Strandafjellet segment), which comes from the movie “Being There” (last year’s film by Field Productions), blew my mind.
The jumps these guys make combined with the scenery below as they b-line these hits (really big jumps)… wow!
Be warned, especially all of you Physical Therapists out there, at one point Aleksander Aurdal dislocates his shoulder (you don’t see the fall, relax). Their on-site medic helps him pop it back in (CRAZY!) and then… a little while later… he decides to ski AGAIN! Why? Because, as he says,”Can not let this opportunity pass!” Do NOT try that at home folks…
Visually, however, some of these shots are stunning.
As Denver prepares for it’s first potential snow of this season, enjoy!
