Ski Flying or Speed Riding down Aconcagua

by Noah Bloom Posted in Inspirational, Of The Day

Call it whatever you like. This hybrid extreme winter sport is jaw-dropping.

This guy François Bon summited Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, at 22,841 feet. His 11 day approach and climb was capped up by a 4 minute and 50 second descent of the 9000 foot south face.

Amazing. Watch:
