Speedriding: where skiing and parachuting meet

“I have spent my whole life waiting for this moment, an opportunity to pioneer and ski mountains that were previously thought .. unrideable”

-Jon DeVore

If you thought that last week’s urban skiing video was not your average ski video, wait till you see what we have for you this week.  Brought to you by Red Bull, The Unrideables: Alaska Range is a full length speedriding documentary being released this January.

Speedriding is a high-speed, high stakes mountain sport that fuses elements of skiing and parachute flight, allowing participants access to terrain that would otherwise be unrideable.  Red Bull collaborated with one of the world’s greatest experts on human flight, Jon DeVore, who set out with a team of elite aerial athletes to evolve the sport in North America’s most remote and demanding mountain environment.

We’ve seen our fair share of daringly dangerous and awesomely impressive vids but these guys really take things to a whole new level.  Check out the trailer below.
