The steep mountain slopes are beginning their yearly call to all adventurers. This crazy video captures the first decent of Bell Ringer near Haines, Alaska, where the only way to the top is by helicopter and the “landing pad” isn’t even big enough to land: they stick a partial skid into the mountain top while skiers Reggie Crist and Chris Coulter deftly jump onto the minuscule peak. This video gives us a look at the awesome skill needed to access, ski and film these amazing exploits.
