Video: I’m not 100 per cent sure the skier in the video didn’t clip his head on the boots of the people sitting on the ski lift. But even if he did, he’s still badarse enough to complete a casual double backflip off a wild jump. I’ve watched the video multiple times and it’s totally nuts. After he completes the first flip he’s basically eye level with the lift, and yet he kept on spinning to nail the trick. The distance he travels in the air is sick.
