Video: I started to watch this video expecting a routine BASE jump, but no, it’s nothing routine. “JT Holmes follows Mark Broderick as he pushes the limits of base jumping with nine front flips on a tower,” says the description. Indeed. Broderick cut it so close that, for a moment there, I thought he was going to crash.
Video: Luckily for Eric Hjorleifson, the avalanche that he started by going down a big mountain pillow line doesn’t fully consume him, leaving him relatively unscathed — he just “twisted his knee a bit.” You can hear the fear in his heavy breathing after the incident, though.
