Night Skiing with Light Suits Is Like Being in Tron for the Winter

Inspired by night surfers wearing LEDs, Switchback Entertainment made this video for Salomon Freeski TV showing skiers wearing their own light suits. Strapped with EL-wire on their bodies, the skiers slalom down the powder covered mountain like it's The Grid. Awesome.

According to MAKE, the video was filmed with just small headlamps, the EL wire suits and the moon as the only light sources. The Tron-esque action really picks up around the 2:22 minute mark. It looks so ridiculously fun. [YouTube via MAKE]

That video was cool, but I was expecting more light suits and less skiing in the dark with bright spotlights. I get that skiing in complete darkness is dangerous, but they could have chosen a nice open spot so they could turn off the bright lights for the full light suit effect. Just some nit picking on an otherwise cool video.
