Inspired by night surfers wearing LEDs, Switchback Entertainment made this video for Salomon Freeski TV showing skiers wearing their own light suits. Strapped with EL-wire on their bodies, the skiers slalom down the powder covered mountain like it’s The Grid. Awesome.

According to MAKE, the video was filmed with just small headlamps, the EL wire suits and the moon as the only light sources. The Tron-esque action really picks up around the 2:22 minute mark. It looks so ridiculously fun. [YouTube via MAKE]
