Jump to :50 mark and you will see what we are talking about.
“Avey on my 6… i should probably layout a back flip” this guy is awesome.
hes like “what bitches” hahaha
wow. commitment at its finest.
Wow sick, and as most will recall he was almost taken out by two heavy avey’s in Attack of La Nina. What a bad ass
You know what would be even sicker? Setting an example to not ski slopes that are touchy.
You sir do not get the point of free skiing.
no words, speechless
He lost his gopro at some point on that run…
How does he sit down with balls so big?
The race was on he WON he was Ballz out !!!!
holy ballz!!!!!!! god damn!! seen this guy in a bunch of vids with Kaj. He rips it!
all praise to Sverre! wow!!
Imagine how much he must have crapped his pants when he looked behind him mid flip, major balls
That was just like the video game ski Safari
No More GOPro
damn!! that was just crazy – wouldn’t even want to think about what would have happened if he didn’t land that flip :S
“avy on my left, avy on my right, i should probably backflip this”…what da eff
I find it interesting that so many people bagged out the guy that ignored some minor tell tales and got caught in an avalanche, but then riding out an avalanche is so hugely celebrated. It seems like people that do this are portrayed as heroes…of course young guns are going to go out there and get in silly situations if this is who they look up to. No doubt it was incredible and he survived, but how come this is celebrated in this and so many other movies, but then people seem surprised when someone gets killed or badly injured. Seems like a double standard to me.
In these situations there are helicopters, cameras, and medical staff on scene. All of which increase chances of being saved. I would not glorify people who try this in the backcountry with only one or two inexperienced friends to respond.
No need to worry, he had an airbag pack on, pulling the cord magically transports you to a beach in Tahiti.
The people who bag on others and the ones who actually do this and look up to rippers are two different types. Our way of life is dangerous and we loose many buddies along the way. Most only know ones that are heavily publicized, but for the guys who do this day in day out its old news. injury and death do not keep us from going out and getting a buzz from playing in the snow. If you don’t want to stomp a flip into a avy path then don’t. If you want to then this is probably one of the safest places to do so, it’s a competition dudes push it,, rescue staff is there but like in any sport anything can happen.
that was severe…
that guys is WAY sicker than anyone at squaw
Everyone except me
shaun white still wins gold
Back flip over avey…Is there a Gnar bonus for that?
Beacon, Shovel, Probe, Backflip…check
I was skiing Zermatt the day before the big mtn slopestyle comp, and things were def ripping out. Looks like they choose an aspect with a hell of allot more snow than most of what we were skiing. Insane to watch, but I couldnt agree more with some of the posters above. What a better place to tempt fate and conditions than a huge comp with tons of well trained rescue personnel, helicopters, and medics. If we would have been buried there would have been 50 people searching within two minutes. Just saying
Except for the fact that the majority of avalanche-related deaths are from trauma suffered during the slide, rather than suffocation following the slide arrest.
That dude is amazing! No question, any way you cut it for any reason. There is a difference between those wanting to be the man, and those that are the man. That Dude IS the man. Period.
