Uh… whatever happened to people doing weird sh*t like skiing on rocks in the middle of the summer like they did back in the 1980s?
Are we soft? Do we not love skiing as much as they did? Are we just not as cool as them? WHAT GIVES?!?!?!?!?!
I’m just saying that the video below is one of the weirdest, yet coolest, things I’ve seen in a very long time.
We need to get back to rock skiing.

Over the bar one night in 1987, I asked these Santa Fe ski bums, “who wanted to try rock skiing?”, and the next day we made it happen. Off we went with their rock skis to the slides above Cerrillios and Madrid. Sorry about the low quality but this was taped on an old video camcorder.”
Puts a whole new meaning to owning a pair of rock skis, right?
