Ross Tester did not come in first at Xtreme Verbier Switzerland for men’s skiing. That honor went to Maxime Chabloz, who did have a pretty wild winning run. That said, Ross Tester did succeed in landing a shockingly large cliff drop to take second place.
Please watch the entire thing. Study it. Question whether or not it’s something you could even comprehend doing yourself. I know I can’t. I generally don’t have problems with heights, but I do have a problem with falling to my actual death, which is probably what would happen if I tried that same drop.
And there’s the GoPro footage, which fully succeeds in causing some hardcore puckering.
