The funny faces of professional skiers when they're racing down a slope

This video is awesome for two reasons. One, because it's awesome to see three-time International Ski Federation overall World Cup winner Marcel Hirscher going down a hill in such detail. The other one: It shows he's human. I thought these guys were like Batman, but just look at his face. » 3/19/14 7:59pm 3/19/14 7:59pm

I just can't believe how insanely crazy this skier is

Watch Mickael Bimboes launching "off a massive cliff in his 3rd place run for the Swatch Freeride World Tour at Aiguille Pourrie, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France." And remember, folks—this guy got the third place. Seriously, watch it all because you are not going to believe how nuts and/or suicidal this dude is. » 3/13/14 8:31pm 3/13/14 8:31pm

Watch the World's Longest Ski Ramp Send a Guy Flying 800 Feet

The Vikersundbakken, a 440-foot record-setting ski ramp, opened this week in southern Norway. It didn't take long for someone to put it to good use: earlier today, 25-year-old ski flyer Johan Remen Evensen set the world record with a mind-boggling 797 foot jump. Good thing he stuck the landing. [Wired] » 2/11/11 8:20pm 2/11/11 8:20pm

This Power Plant Blows O's and Doubles As a Ski Slope

The only times I've noticed power plants are when they blow an obnoxious amount of smoke in the air. If I lived in Copenhagen though, I think I would hang out at their power plant. The waste-to-energy plant is called the Big Vortex and the roof of the plant will be used as a ski slope. Seriously, it's part of a… » 2/07/11 8:40pm 2/07/11 8:40pm
