Urban skiing in Detroit.

I prefer powder and backcountry, but admire these skills, not to mention unique location!

Beacons not required.

Sure do, DMT!

Filmed in the Kootenays... Trail, Nelson. I'm from B.C. originally.

I like the Detroit video way more. The Kootenay piece seemed contrived to me, because there is world class skiing just a few miles away. Not so much in Detroit :)

edit - Though as a kid growing up in BC, i would've been stoked to have had the concept of riding rails and making use of what we had in town. Instead, we tried to skied sagebrush covered hillsides with a foot of snow, chip piles at the sawmill, and practiced late '70s freestyle ballet on the grass in the backyard.

some of the tricks in the vdo are powered by towline "catapult" launcher. What kids can save up for nowadays... Commercially avail. for about US$5k.

watching this again... I'd rather ski the Kootenay streets than Detroit .

THEBraveCowboy,

I would do that with no rope!
On the Don's highest bridge!
With or without you!
On top or below!
Look out below!

Beet that Shalakov!

Oh, but I forgot...I resolved to stop being competitive next year (still good for the remainder of 2913, tho).

And jumping off bridges just cuz my friends do it.
The music falls far short of optimal--sorry.
