VIDEO: Why Riding Across Cornices Is Playing With Fire

If you’ve ever had any question about the dangers of riding on cornices look no further than this video out of Qanat Bakish, Lebanon where a snowboarder decided to try his luck and traverse an overhanging snow lip only to have it snap off, taking him with it.
