/ Ski VIDEO....and he's not even.....
I don't know much about these tricks...but is the backflip at 3:00 the most audacious (despite not being huge or spectacular)? Doesn't look like there is much scope for error re: possibly hitting the road upon landing and coming to a dead stop rather than hitting the snow and retaining momentum)
The entire film is absolutely great. Absolutely stunning.
JP has been a ski prodigy since the mid 90s. He's also super approachable... bumped into him in the Alps back then. This film, which last year was slated by a few philistines expecting doubles corks, is the one that inspired me the most of late. Absolute genius.
^^^^ what Erick said...
Great 'feel' to the whole clip.
That is very excellent
Good video - saw it a while back and it reminded me of skiing in Scotland, but without the wind.
